A local Democratic Party operative will be reporting to Iowa this week to help coordinate the get-out-vote efforts for the Kerry/Democrats campaigns. It will be an experience this operative will cherish forever.
The operative is now in the big game. Iowa, with its seven electoral votes, is a battleground state. Battleground states like Iowa get all the political attention. That's where the action is.
This year's election is extremely close. The country is divided. The voters are paying attention. The stakes are high. Both camps are pulling out all the stops to win.
Regardless of the outcome on election day, this operative can take pride that he was there and participated in one of the most important elections of his lifetime.
