There are little things that happen that symbolically explain the differences between the two campaigns. Nancy Takehara, a 58 year-old Chicagoan, was physically attacked yesterday in Wisconsin, while she was canvassing for Barack Obama. A man accused her of being with ACORN, grabbed her by the neck, and beat her about the head. When she got home there was a message for her from Obama, with a number for her to call. She dialed the number and Obama came on the line.

“Sen. Obama understood, reassured me, he was wonderful,” Takehara said. “It made me feel connected to this government again.”

No word on whether John McCain has called her to apologize for inciting a man to violence with false charges against ACORN, an organization that advocates for poor people.

In a nutshell, this episode explains the choice you have in this election.
