Obama Leads by Example – Pushing ‘Til the End!


Seven more days. I woke with a sinus headache and the sniffles this morning – bound to be a cold coming on. Lost of people at the Campaign for Change headquarters pulling long shifts and looking a bit blearly. Temps dropping into the 30s this week with snow in the forecast.

But we’re not letting up one bit in Michigan, not even with our 15+% lead in the polls.

And neither is Senator Obama.

It would be easy for us to let up now. Michigan is looking very solid for Obama-Biden:

But we’re not. Like so many others, I put in over 15 hours of canvassing this past weekend and this is happening all over the country. We’ll be phone banking and canvassing through the week and, starting Saturday morning there’s going to be a Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort like nobody has ever seen before in this country.

And look at Barack Obama go:

One rainstorm, two campaigns and two responses

Wearing jeans, white sneakers and an insulated windbreaker, Barack Obama delivered his stump speech this morning in a chilly, steady rain in Chester, Pa.

“A little bit of rain never hurt anybody,” Obama said, surveying the soaking, umbrella-covered crowd at Widener University, occasionally rubbing his hands together for warmth and squinting through the raindrops. An estimated 9,000 people turned out.

Toughing it out, pushing through to the end, leading by example.

And what is John McCain doing?

[T]he McCain campaign announced it was postponing a rally at 1:15 p.m. in Quakertown, Pa., about one hour north of Chester, “due to weather.”

I guess when John McCain says, “What America needs now is someone who … will fight to the end,” he means as long as it’s not, you know, like raining or something.

I’m just sayin’…
