So Many Volunteers, So Few Voters

A reader writes:

I decided to spend an hour this afternoon making phone calls for the Obama campaign, and picked up my list via the website. I wanted to call Virginia, because I think it is the most important swing state, and also because I'm on West Coast time, and it would be about 7 pm there. About 20 calls in, I left a message for this one woman, and a couple of minutes later she called me back. She must have picked up my number off caller i.d... She asked why I was calling, and I said "I'm volunteering from the Obama campaign, and am calling to ask you to vote." She laughed a great laugh and said, "That's what I'm doing, too, and I was on the phone so didn't answer!"
