“My Wife made me Canvas for Obama”

Very nice little vignette of a conservative banker (who voted for Bush three times) who was made to go from door to door by his wife and spread the word for Obama. A funny and moving article, culminating in the paragraph:

“I’ve learned that this election is about the heart of America. It’s about the young people who are losing hope and the old people who have been forgotten. It’s about those who have worked all their lives and never fully realized the promise of America, but see that promise for their grandchildren in Barack Obama. The poor see a chance, when they often have few. I saw hope in the eyes and faces in those doorways”

It’s in the online offering of the now sadly out of print Christian Science Monitor. Have a peek, it’s worth it.
