I just received an email (as most of you probably did!) from Steve Hildebrand, deputy campaign manager for Obama, as follows:
Today, I am proud to announce that our presidential campaign will be the first in a generation to deploy and maintain staff in every single state.
The network of volunteers and the infrastructure built up during the historic primary season -- on behalf of all the Democratic campaigns -- have given us an enormous and unprecedented opportunity in the general election.
We need to register new voters and bring people back into the political process. We need to reach out to Independents and Republicans who know that our country cannot afford another four years of George W. Bush's disastrous policies.
FIFTY STATE STRATEGY.
I love it.
I honestly do.
