Thanks to the Ashbrook Center family
Peter Schramm and company were most genial hosts for our event yesterday. The Ashbrook Scholars asked excellent questions in our afternoon session and the friends of the Ashbrook Center provided a wonderful audience for our celebration of gloom and doom in the evening.
I note that we complained about the McCain campaign's unimpressive ground game. It certainly pales in comparison both with the GOTV efforts of the 2004 Bush campaign and the exceedingly well-organized and well-funded 2008 Obama effort. But I'll also note that my drive through the Ashbrook part of Ohio (on my way to the Turnpike and ultimately to my alma mater, Michigan State University) displayed plenty of physical evidence of a McCain presence. Indeed, there are surely more yard signs for both campaigns this time than there were in 2004.
