In an effort to record campaign history taking place and better understand the roots of Dean's incredible momentum, we hopped on down to Joe and Jo's and asked a number of those in attendance: Why Dean? Why here? What next? Click Here to hear the interviews.
One of the cleverest activities carried out at today's Dean meetups around the country was a letter-writing campaign: not fancy stationery sent to members of Congress or foreign potentates, but rather hand-written notes sent to undecided voters in New Hampshire. The savvy folks behind this idea recognize that a one real letter is worth a thousand mass-printed solicitations. This Dean Meetup ended with a call to join special Dean service squads such as the Habitat for Humanity work group organized by "Skinny Cats" (think about it) on the Dean team. Helping neighbors in addition to promoting a candidate is sure to leave a lasting impact on the Durham community.
If you like what you hear, consider joining a meetup yourself, either for Howard Dean or another Democratic candidate of your choosing. Whomever you choose to support, what's most important is that you get involved. We'll need a large mass of people applying small bits of leverage to counter the big bucks employed by Bush's elite few.
