"The campaign wants us to not go in the houses, but we do it anyway! We're supposed to do three hours of canvassing, but it's an hour in each house. Before I know it, I have three tacos in my hand. Before I go, they've hugged me and blessed me!"
Among the eco-friendly buildings, bikes and Obama shirts, one could forget McCain is close in the polls and the war in Iraq rages on. In Denver, the sun is shining and the streets look clean, as if last night had been a gulley-washer instead of only a few drops of rain in the desert.
