Obama has so much money, now that he has
I live in Tennessee. We didn't even go blue in 2000 for savior of the world, AlGore. When I get e-mails and mailings from the state and local Republican party reps, I tend to ignore them. I shouldn't. Campaigning for McCain will help local and state office candidates even if I don't do anything directly for the local candidates.
I need to go vote in November, even if my vote won't do anything because McCain is sure to win this state anyway. Why? Well, besides the down-ticket elections, I don't want one of those "won the electoral vote but lost the popular vote" elections.
Every vote counts. Even if all you do is cancel out your next-door neighbors ignorant vote, at least you have done something.
