I normally resent when telemarkers call me at home, but I’ve received a phone call every day this week from my local Obama office and have been way more impressed than annoyed. First of all the people who have called me have all been **intelligent **and even tho I know they must have a script, none of them sounded canned. Also, I had a campaign worker come to my door several months ago and got into a discussion with him where I disclosed that I was an Obama Republican. I am presuming he must have input that in the Big Obama database because every caller from the campaign seems aware of this. The daily phone callers are trying to get me to join their marketing campaign, but when I declined they were not at all pushy and simply thanked me for my vote. Since that initial call, I’ve had daily messages on my answering machine thanking me for my support and asking for nothing. Now, because of their unconventional attitude, I am actually considering working their phone banks, even tho this is a totally hectic weekend for me.
Shayna, if you see this, let me know if you work at the Sepulveda office. If so I might meet you this weekend.
