One of the big X factors in the election is whether the historic voter registration drives we've seen will materialize into record turnout on Nov. 2, and both parties are strategizing to make sure their sides get people to the polls. ABC's The Note reports this morning that John Kerry will have a formidable weapon in his mobilization arsenal in the final days of the race: Bill Clinton, who has been sidelined for weeks because of heart surgery.
"ABC News' Ed O'Keefe reports that former President Bill Clinton campaign for Senator John Kerry in the final push to election day. According to the campaign, Clinton will campaign 'as doctors see fit.' The former President will likely campaign in African-American communities and in other [get out the vote] efforts. Clinton will also likely participate in radio ads, robo calls and direct mail efforts."
