Going the Extra Mile.

OK, here it is, another anecdote. For what it's worth. Talked to my sister the other night. She, herself, just recently came over to Bernie Sanders from the Hillary Clinton side. To tell the truth we were both Hillary supporters at one time. It would have been nice to see the first woman in the White House.

Anyway, my sister had her brother and sister in law drop by over the weekend. The sister-in-law is as conservative as they come. The talk turned to politics, because, with my sister, the talk always turns to politics. Well, the sister-in-law pipes up and says, "If I was going to vote for anyone, I'd vote for Bernie Sanders." My sister was so astonished, she was speechless. At least that's what she says. "Bernie, really?" my sister asks her sil. Yes is the answer. "Are you registered?" my sister asks. No, the sil is not registered.

"Let's get you registered then." So my sister sits down at the computer and pulls up a voter registration form. She isn't able to get the sil registered on line for some reason, so she downloads the form, helps the sil to fill it out and sign it . Then she puts it in a envelope addresses it, puts a stamp on it, and mails it next day.

"I'll probably have to take her to the polls, too, " my sister says. "She's not real sure how to use the voting machines. But it's ok. I have to bundle T.(her husband who never votes and whom she just registered) into the car and make him go vote. The only bad thing is, since I made him watch the last debate, he really likes O'Malley."

When she's in for something, she's all in.

3. I have one sister that won't budge on

Hillary. Hopefully, she will be swayed by Bernie's numbers in the early states.

5. I'll speak to my sister tomorrow.

Hopefully she will have finally seen the light. She is the only hold out in our very large family so I definitely want to see her on board with us. It's such a fun campaign to be part of. Don't want her to miss out on the fun.
