Something's Coming

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!
Something's coming, don't know when, but it's soon;
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliver
To me!
Will it be? Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It'll be there!

Big Media Matt says he has lots of second hand, and now first hand, anecdotal evidence that Democrats are really mobilized now. As a swing state resident living in an urban area, I can't look out my window without seeing people with clipboards walking down the street. Lots of people I know talk about their out of state friends coming to town. I hear, though I don't know, that the operation in 'burbs is quite impressive too. I hope so.

Whatever happens this election, we will have achieved something -- the mobilization of the left of center crowd to do... something. Will all this voter registration/canvassing/GOTV efforts on Tuesday put us over the top? I'm not sure. I think we'll win, but no one can be sure. But, at the very least I think the seeds of... something... have been planted.
