2     "Can I help you?" a young woman asked.
3     "Yes," said Mr. Edwin. "We're here to find out how to get involved in the campaign."
4     "That's wonderful," she said, reaching out her hand to welcome Mr. Edwin. "My name is Karen."
5     "Hi, Karen," said Mr. Edwin. "This is Meghan. She's going to be studying presidential campaigns in school. I thought maybe we could get some firsthand experience."
6     "Hi, Meghan! What are you interested in doing?" asked Karen.
7     "What is there to do?" asked Meghan.
8     "Oh, my!" said Karen, smiling and raising her hand to brush back her hair. "There are many things to do. You can pass out flyers, put up lawn signs, take a bumper sticker for your car, answer phones, and I could go on and on."

10     "Okay. I'll get them for you," said Karen, turning to walk away.
11     "Is that all a campaign does?" asked Meghan.
