It's over. Now 7 pm in the East. Day started at 7am at the IAFF - AFL/CIO Headquarters of the Firefighters down here in Palm Beach. Phone banks set up in their exec offices allowed a rag tag rainbow coalition of campaign workers to ring up lists of registered democrats.The names were in descending order of age. I swear. It started off with a dozen or more people listed at 105 and went down to 104, 103, 102, 101, etc. I called one 93 year old who was being wheeled in his wheel chair to vote for Kerry as we spoke. Another 94 year old "didn't remember if she voted, but if she did, she voted for Kerry. Our "War Room" was staffed with a half dozen people - mostly from the holistic healing world. One guy was an acupuncturist, another was a "upper body therapist", there was even a new age nurse.

More later.....

Can you help us out?
