Election night two years ago (after making calls myself), I stayed up alone, trying (and failing) to get drunk enough to pass out. Then I waited for EK (then in DC) to wake up and see the news.
I never want to experience that again.
So while some people say your vote doesn't count, working to bend the arc of history toward justice is definitely better than just trying to drink yourself into oblivion.
That is why it was worth it to canvas all afternoon, rather than watching the Steelers and doing more email.
