Today there’s one story that deserves a break in this long blogging silence. And as important as it is it’s not the election of Barack Obama as next President of the USA, it’s the successful campaigning holiday of Cllr Chris Maines.
Unbeknown even to Senator Obama, in the run up to elections Chris Maines bought a ticket to the swing state Florida and there he joined the Obama Campaign and put his fine skills of political campaigner to good use, knocking on doors, asking people to vote Obama.
He believes that politics can change things for the better for many and that it was better to do his little bit than to live in regret. Many in the world are greatly affected by who’s in charge at the White House and yet can’t vote for that, Chris found a way round that.
