Guess who’s voting? Redux

GUESS WHO’S VOTING? REDUX…. We talked about this the other day, but it occurred to me readers might have missed an item posted on a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend, so I thought I’d offer a quick reminder.

About a week ago, I had an idea for a short election-related video, so I jotted down a few notes. Of course, I don’t know anything about turning back-of-the-napkin ideas into a finished product, so I took the concept to my friend Bill Simmon, a skilled filmmaker who knew exactly how to convert my script into a fun little clip.

Here’s what we came up with. I’ve been encouraged by the positive feedback thus far — it’s especially heartening to see so many folks pass the video around via email, social networking sites, and their own blogs — but I continue to be interested in reader reactions to this.
