  2. Saturday, November 3rd. late afternoon, South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL. Somewhat ambivalent, Al accepts our free cup of coffee, chooses between Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts, selects a mug, explains his thinking, and after a bit, switches to the other mug. A great snapshot of how I think many people feel when it comes to making this decision. His final preference? Bud or Miller. Watch to find out.

This is an exercise in the opportunity and power we all have as humans to make a difference in our world today. Even at the last minute.

A recent visit back to Kansas found me reluctant to have a political conversation with one of my best friend's wife, until she said she simply wanted to understand why I was going to vote the way I was. That was Thursday night.

Friday morning, I had the crazy idea to find out what other people were thinking, ask them "why", and use the incredible power of our (nearly taken-for-granted) personal technology to allow people back in Chicago to understand a Kansas Republican, and then to allow Kansas Republicans to experience the same of a Chicago Democrat - and hopefully there may be a few surprises.

Friday morning, on a whim, I asked my brother, Steve who has a sign business in his Overland Park, KS, basement if he would call up the mug shots I just emailed to him, and start making a magnetic sign that we could slap on the side of his truck as we did a quick, 3 day "visit the relatives road tour" all the way out to within 50 miles of the Kansas/Colorado border.

He laid out the sign while I wrote the copy. About an hour later, we put the signs on the truck and headed out on "Steve and Phil's Excellent Adventure: Kansas Road Tour 2012"
