Retail politics in a democratic republic


More than 1,000 people showed up for our precinct caucus.  That’s 200 times more people than have showed in any previous year.  I didn’t get elected convention chairman by default, nor did I even get nominated.  The parking problems anticipated by The New Republic all came to pass — and no one really cared. 

It was fantastic to watch.

Obama got 89% of the 55 delegates to our Senatorial District Convention; Clinton got 11%.

More, later I hope, when I get a few minutes to write about it.

    Wow, that’s pretty exciting, I’d heard the turnout was good, but anecdotal evidence is always the funnest to hear!
