Illinois to Iowa for Obama

If you're wanting to participate in FINALLY getting our country back on course, you might consider this effort by the Obama campaign.

Fortunately, Illinois is considered to be a lock for Obama in November, but the states surrounding it are definitely not. In fact, they are the ultra-crucial swing states that will determine whether this country had to endure more of the same and be drug further down the same failed path.

Iowa is one of only two states that voted Republican in 2004 after voting Democratic in 2000. George W. Bush won Iowa by less than one percentage point – a switch of only three votes per precinct would have turned the state Democratic.

Though you can voluteer to help out in any neighboring state, the Obama campaign is asking people in western Illinois to sign up and volunteer to travel across the creek to Iowa for a massive get out the vote effort.

This is not the time to leave things to chance.

Get involved, even if it's just a little of your time.

YES! Let's to Iowa and tell them about all the many wonderful things that Senator Obama has done for Illinois.

But seriously folks, Obama will safely carry Iowa because he already has the organization intact and McCain has never seriously competed in Iowa. So the best thing that Obama supporters can do is just sit back and relax and do nothing. You've got Iowa in the bag.

And Illinois is safe too. So no matter what happens nationally, you should feel good that he carries Illinois. An Obama victory is heavily predicted.
I am just saying, even if Obama should (for some reason) lose every single battleground state I don't want to hear Democrats whining on November 5th. Why? Because you are going to carry Illinois hands down. The Illinois McCain supporters should be the only ones complaining.

Nico,
A personal appology is in order.

I just now noticed your comment and posted it. It had somehow gotten diverted into the spam folder (which I usually just delete without checking, as Google mail is pretty good about identifying spam.)

I wondered why I hadn't gotten much from you for a little while, and only hope that more of your ocmments didn't get unceremoniously lumped in with the volumes of spam.

Anyway, I caught this one and rescued it from certain death. I've told my mail program that stuff from you is NOT spam, so hopefully it won't happen again.

Now that that's out of the way, I agree, IL is in the bag for it's native son.

And I trust Obama will pick off Iowa as well. But it's been very tight the last few elections, and nothing is guaranteed. (though even the number crunchers are saying Obama will likely get Iowa at this stage.)

The fact of the matter is that we're pretty lucky. IL may be reliably Dem, but the states surrounding us in the midwest are truly the states that determine who will become president.

Ohio has always been critical, and WI, MN, IN, and MO are also key.

If Obama doesn't get most or all, he'll be in trouble. McCain has to get at least a couple or he's sunk too.

Too bad the crop of corrupt Republicans, including their horrid Sec. of State, isn't around anymore to pull all kinds of blatant scams to swing votes to Republicans. The Ohio S.O.S. is still lurking around waiting for his reward. And as a black Republican, I'm sure he thought he was going straight to the top.

Looks like he picked a bad time to jump on the Republican bandwagon. And it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
