Day 1: Starting with the camp of very old Bush bashers

Today we started our door to door campaign effort with Moveon.org people. Heidi who is a moveonpac staff came to supervise our first day of work. And it was such a great experience to go to the doors of these elderly people and talk with them about the eleection. Moveon has the plan to keep in touch with the likely democrat voters to make sure that they keep in touch with the election news and also to make sure that the finally vote on the day of election. Today we went to this building in the squiril hill neighborhood which was filled with very old democrates. For me it was very intersting to see how a friendly person like Hiedi who might sound strange and naive in the first meeting, can be effective in interacting these people and touching their hearts. And it was great to see how much these elderly people dislike the current trends of this country and how much they care about their country. And at the same time seeing their lonely life was some how sad and depressing.
