I am the dreaded swing voter.

A white, conservative, suburbanite banker talks about his experience canvassing for Obama:

I've learned that this election is about the heart of America. It's
about the young people who are losing hope and the old people who have
been forgotten. It's about those who have worked all their lives and
never fully realized the promise of America, but see that promise for
their grandchildren in Barack Obama. The poor see a chance, when they
often have few. I saw hope in the eyes and faces in those doorways.

My wife and I went out last weekend to knock on more doors. But this time, not because it was her idea. I don't know what
it's going to do for the Obama campaign, but it's doing a lot for me.
