Can You Get Nine Votes?

One of the things that most impressed me about Obama during his epic battle with Hillary was his ability to organise. All those years as a community organiser clearly taught him something.

This video shows the formidable organisational skills, at a local level, that are going into this campaign. A young organiser informs us:

"118,601. That's a number you should know. That's the number of votes John Kerry lost Ohio by. That breaks down to 9 votes per precinct. Nine votes in your neighborhood."

"So can you get nine votes?"

I have the feeling that's not going to be allowed to happen a second time.
