The aftermath

Language poet, critic, and Philadelphia Obama canvasser Ron Silliman:

I was just one of 1.1 million Obama volunteers yesterday. Unquestionably the get-out-the-vote effort was the greatest single act of community organizing in this nation’s history.

After the atrocious Republican National Convention, I take a great deal of satisfaction in the fact that community organizing is exactly what won this election for Obama.

Our work is not over, but now it has begun.
