What is it with the inability of phone solicitors to deliver their lines with some sort of emotion? I've received two calls so far from Obama For America, and while I'm sure the operators are volunteers who are convinced of the mission of the campaign, they don't convey it to me! What they are able to convey is that they've been sitting next to the phone too long. (They also thanked me for my donation in February. What donation?)
At any rate, I just get annoyed by donation calls, being newly out of college and not particularly affluent, and I wish they weren't so necessary. Can't say they haven't been effective despite it all, though.
