This came in from Northern Virginia for Obama (emphasis mine):
Dear Obama Supporters,
I want to thank everyone who volunteered or participated in Obama campaign events this past year….especially the ones I hosted!
Regardless of the results tonight you have helped us win a David vs. Goliath battle in Arlington and the entire region, as faced with the local presence of the National Headquarters of our opponent, we showed that grassroots volunteers can overcome all odds to outsmart, outplay and outlast any challenge (for Survivor fans).
This was evident last night, when at the Ballston metro we faced an uphill battle of 6 Obama volunteers against a larger crowd of Hillary volunteers.
But this was still a great victory because one of our clever “Hope Mongers” was able to find out that her workers were imported from Bronx, NY at a cost of $7.00 an hour (minus travel and lodging costs I’m sure).
That’s right, 2-3 blocks from her headquarters she needed PAID workers.
So, a big victory tonight will mean a PR win, a delegate win and also a MONEY win for Barack Obama.
Reminds me of the Cellucci gubernatiorial campaign in Massachusetts. They decided to hold a rally in my hometown, and couldn’t find enough supporters, so they brought in two busloads. Coming home from work each day, its been Obama supporters I’ve seen out and about with literature and a ready smile.
