Putting your money where your mouth is

I had a great conversation about politics in the US (and the UK) with spikeylady and ciphergoth tonight, while full of Thai food and white wine. Two more days to the Ohio election, and Barack Obama has money from us now helping him do whatever is necessary to secure the Democratic nomination. Per this article in the New York Times, Obama's got "a lean and mean political machine that gets the job done," and I expect the money will be spent in phone banks or doorbelling - putting people on the ground to make it happen, like the campaign I participated in in '96.

I decided about ten years ago that money was the thing I could give that mattered most, far more than my paltry vote or even hours of volunteer work, to either an arts or a political organization. It was what they wanted from me the most, too. I'll send out more when the generals roll around, you know it.
