The phone in my house is ringing a lot more often these days. Politicians are eager to talk to their constituents and urge them to vote, and I have to say–though it may sound corny–that I’m proud to count myself among those who have been carefully selected to receive such personal calls. Nothing makes me feel more cared for than a recorded telephone message from a politician, especially when I can hear the message as it is being delivered.
If I have to I’ll listen to the messages that get recorded on voicemail, but obviously that is so much more impersonal. Don’t you agree?
