"The Great Schlep" For Obama

Sarah Silverman CBS/EARLY SHOW

We've all seen how every vote counts in presidential elections -- particularly in Florida.

Now, a group called the Jewish Council for Education and Research is behind The Great Schlep, which encourages young Jews to go to Florida to nudge their grandparents to vote for Barack Obama for president.

And, as Early Show weather anchor and features reporter Dave Price explains, comedian Sarah Silverman made a video featured in the movement, and on its Web site.

Price spoke with some "great schleppers" -- and their grandparents -- to see how it's going in their cases. In one particular case, a schlepper pulled out all the stops!
