After a harrowing drive last night through a snowstorm in Connecticut, we made it to Philly and crashed with some Obama buddies and were back on the road this morning at 9. Eleven hours later and we were in Columbia, SC, staying with a local Democratic resident.
Obama HQ was hopping this Friday night, and we were quickly assigned roles. I’ll be helping with data sorting and whatnot, not too different than the database/spreadsheet stuff I’d done for Kerry in ’04.
There’s definite excitement here and an incredibly energized, diverse, and committed field organization. Tomorrow is both the Republican primary and the dry run for ours. Our fingers are crossed for Nevada, and we await Obama’s arrival on Sunday.
