Graphic from Obama Vermont page (half size)

"in the 2008 presidential election we not only led the charge by being the first state in the nation to be declared for Obama, but we also reached beyond our own borders to deliver victory in other states by making over 100,000 get-out-the-vote calls to Florida and Pennsylvania and knocking on 35,000 doors in New Hampshire." - Ian P. Carleton (in Feb. 2009 e-mail announcing resignation as chair)
