Sueddeutsche Zeitung in Plainfield

Dateline: Fri 03 Oct 2008

A lot of Obama supporters are maxing out until the election: working every weekend and/or throughout the week for change in Washington, D.C.

Friends Crystal and Nick Crews -- he of the legal challenge to limits on political signs in yards -- are no exception. Every Tuesday, they're holding pitch-in/phone parties at their Plainfield home. When Crystal put a notice about the ongoing event on the Obama website, she heard back from a reporter for a prominent German newspaper, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Turns out U.S. correspondent Reymer Kluever is working on a piece on the phenomenal grassroots efforts that charaterize Obama/Biden's efforts to win the White House. Kluever read the notice on the Indiana Obama website, and now he plans to show up at next Tuesday's gathering.

So if you're in the mood for some good Hendricks County grub, and if you like making those dials for Dems, check out the Crews' crib next Tuesday.

Here is the angle Kluever is pursing, sent in an email to Crystal:

"I am looking very much forward to getting an impression of the work at the grass roots' level turning Indiana blue - against all odds."

Here is a link to another recent article Kluever wrote on politics in the U.S.:
