The Secret Of The Bush Fundraising Machine Revealed

TIME columnist John F. Dickerson drops this tidbit in his campaign notebook:

What’s the price for getting to shake hands with the President? Toiling away at the phone lines for an hour afterward, it seems. In exchange for a color-coded pass allowing access to positions along the rope line or choice seats for some Bush speeches, volunteers must agree to spend an hour after the event working the phones or knocking on doors to register voters and sign up Bush activists. Often there’s no chance of escape: advance people design the speech area in such a way that the exit leads directly into the room with waiting phones

I think we’ve found the secret to the Bush fundraising machine – indentured servitude. I hear Kool-Aid is served too…
