Back home from the caucuses (caucii?)

The caucus was down the street from my house. There must have been four or five hundred people there, completely overwhelming the cafeteria of the elementary school it was held in. Final allocation of delegates was Dean, 40, Kerry, 18, Kucinich, 13, 1 Edwards, 2 Undeclared. I'm going to the district caucus in May as a Dean supporter. Oddly, I am now convinced Kucinich is the more liberal candidate (and thus the one I should support) - but I felt Dean had the kind of experience that would actually result in getting things accomplished. We'll see if he drops out in the next week.

After the caucus I went around and lobbied local politicos Collapse )

Now I'm going to make a proper breakfast, grilled sausages and crumpets with eggs and cheese on top. I'm hungry and still pretty wiped out from the party last night.
