Maggie over at is in Boston right now, working for John Kerry's campaign and helping to run the Democratic National Convention. She's looking for 100 good volunteers who can get themselves to Boston and commit to working every day from July 24-30, as well as attend mandatory training in Boston this Saturday or Sunday (short notice, I know). If you're a Dem with some time and airmiles on your hands, and are looking for a way to do your part in the campaign, this is a golden opportunity!
