Who Says We Don't Do Our Part? Even Our Managing Editor Corynne Tried to Call Voters at Work -- Key Word: Tried

We really are trying. But we also like soup. And photo shoots.

Sitting in a teeny tiny office together with Corynne and Emily leads to all manner of mishaps. Like getting annoyed at each other. Like getting in trouble for saying "vagina" too loudly. Like having super awkward office birthdays.

But today was one of my favorite moments ever.

A post-hurricane, post-voting, semi-frazzled Corynne looked at her email and said to no one in particular, "Obama wants me to make calls to people to get out the vote."

I looked at her. "What?"

"Should I do it?" she said, looking at the very personal email she got from BarackObama.com since she had signed up to participate. "Should I call these people? You know what. I'm going to do it."

I turned on my iPhone video to capture the ever-organized Corynne trying to call voters around the country -- until, well, you'll see.
