Ok, so I spent yesterday walking the streets of south Kansas City for the McCaskill campaign. We were looking for those pesky Democrats who don't vote in the midterms. Apparently, we were able to find a few.
Yesterday morning, we were told by our fresh-faced campaign worker that McCaskill had approximately 4,000 volunteers out for the day all over Missouri. And other groups, other campaigns also had canvassers and phone-bankers, drivers and poll watchers.
So when it was finally declared that McCaskill had won and I was filled with strange pride at the fact, was it because that I, as merely one among thousands, made the difference? No, of course not. But I do know that a little more was done with 4,000 than would have been done with 3,999.
