Canvassing on Halloween

We have been giving out candy all night. The first family that came to the door gave us a "Yes on 3B" flier and asked us to vote for the schools. Later in the evening, an entire contingent of children wearing Obama for America buttons on their Spider Man, ghost, and skeleton costumes, came to the door.

I've never seen Halloween campaigning before. It just speaks to how important this election is to people. Nobody wants to take off even a kids' holiday because we need so much.

In 1980, I dressed as John Anderson for Halloween. But then, I was rather different from the other children.

1980 was a pretty desperate election year, as well.
