Coolest Lunch Hour, EVAH!!!!

July 17th, 2008 | by Jet Netwal |

While you were muching your turkey sandwich, I got to shake Howard Dean’s hand, see the Change Bus, and generally get completely stoked about being a Democrat. Well, completely stoked really doesn’t describe it, but for once, I’m at a loss for adjectives.

The Register for Change Bus

Here comes the bus…

The crowd is fired up!

It’s a 100 degrees and nobody cares… GO BLUE!

The lean, mean, registration machine. 50 states, no kidding.

The guy at the podium is the Texas State Chair, and the younger guy behind him is the vice president of the UT Dems. His group registered 12,000 Dems this year alone.

Yeah, I was this close! Cool, huh?

Dean asks each active Dem go on the gound in their neighborhood and talk to 25 people three times each between now and November. He says studies show that people talking to their neighbors about why voting Dem is important to them results in a 12% higher turnout. (Mail, phone, canvassing, more like 1 to 2%.) 12% is HUGE.

50 States is real, and we have a plan

Then I got to shake Dean’s hand! All in all, an outstanding lunch hour, even if I didn’t eat.
