Ed Ridpath Door-to-Door Campaign Milestone: 10,000 Voters

Ed Ridpath, Democratic Candidate for the North Carolina House, reached a milestone this Labor Day weekend. Over 10,000 voters contacted so far in his 2008 door-to-door campaign. Committed to one-on-one voter contact, Ridpath, assisted by campaign volunteers, has been door knocking weekly since last October.

Ridpath stated: “Door-to-door campaigning is a little old-fashioned, but it is the best way to get to know my neighbors and the best way for them to get to know me. Over the last year, I have spent most weekends and many evenings listening to voters, right at their own doorstep. This level of direct voter contact is hard work, but very rewarding. The big benefit is that I will represent all of us in Southern Wake County much better when I get to Raleigh.”

It's too bad more women aren't praising Palin's record of achievement. She has succeeded in the male-dominated arenas of athletics and politics, as well as in areas where femininity rules -- beauty pageants and motherhood. I doubt the pregnancy of their 17-year-old unmarried daughter was part of the Palin family plan, but having Bristol come to her parents with news of the baby, and her decision to marry the father, are testimony to the effectiveness of Sarah and Todd's parenting.

The Republican National Convention Electrified by Drama & Scandal

If the Republicans aimed to send out a strong campaign message during their convention about "McCain the Maverick," it’s not getting through. It isn’t Hurricane Gustav that's drowning out the convention message but the Alaskan pipeline of information on Sarah Palin.

The surprise Vice Presidential pick McCain announced just three days ago is generating headlines that read like a bad script from Desperate Housewives:
