Yes We Can
One of the things that has impressed me about the campaign is all of the little things they're doing -- websites like Vote For Change. Collecting contact information at rallies -- they did it at the St Paul rally back in June, they did it at Mile High Stadium last week. They're collecting cell phone numbers when you request to get the text announcements, or when you request the campaign to visit your town.
The Republicans may mock community organizing at their convention -- but from an organizational perspective, I can see what they're doing -- and if they're doing this everywhere, they'll have done community organizing at a scale that we haven't seen much before, and using every piece of modern technology available to them.
And if that can be done to get a candidate elected... what can be done with those resources after the election? Because Election Day isn't the end.
