Fundraising is much less fun than canvassing. Have you ever asked anyone for money? It's not pleasant.
It is, however, sadly necessary. The thing is, it becomes easier when you can offer people the chance to be in the same room with the candidate and hear his stump speech live in return for their cash.
I thought that was silly until I was in a room with the candidate and heard the stump speech live. It makes a difference. It's not like watching the same thing on television at all.
Which is why, I suppose, I felt the need to take a picture, even though there are thousands of better ones out there on the net. Proving that I was there, I guess, even though the only thing I did to be there was get some people to write checks to somebody else.
