On the ground in Oregon, Monday morning, May 19

Over here on Pacific time, things are just starting to get into gear for the day. I will write more about my own experiences of the day once I have some, but for now let's go in-depth regarding one of the people volunteering for voter protection efforts and the Clinton campaign, Paddy McGuire. A former deputy secretary of state for Oregon, Paddy (we are actually on a first name basis since we both attended the training session yesterday, where we met and chatted briefly) is all the more impressive because he's right here with the rest of us, supporting Senator Clinton because he does not want four more years of current Republican policies. When a seasoned politician like Paddy steps up for Senator Clinton, you know she has a real chance in Oregon. Paddy has lived in Portland for many years, and as I snapped a picture of him, he was telling me how much he enjoys living here, raising a family here.

If only the current hapless D.N.C. would listen to Paddy's Five Simple Rules for Coming Back, written in 2004.

Obama walks back declaring victory 5/20. Failed to close the deal. Again.

Thanks for your posts! They make me feel like I'm there with you instead of across the country making phone calls. Go Hillary!
