A great big caucus

By Katharine Swan On Wednesday, February 06, 2008 At 11:59 AM

Michael and I attended our precinct's Democratic caucus last night. It was a first for both of us, and quite an experience!

The caucus was pretty crowded, and even a little rowdy at times: Several precincts met in the same place, and there was (according to the regulars) ten times the usual turnout.

There was one guy (in our precinct, unfortunately) who took to yelling cheers for Obama over the crowd's chatter before the meeting started — all that was missing was a little bleacher-stomping.

Then there was the guy — also in our precinct — whose ravings on Clinton's behalf actually convinced all of the undecided voters to go over to the Obama side.

All of the precincts at our meeting seemed to be overwhelmingly in support of Obama. Our precinct voted for him at a 2-to-1 ratio, which turned out to be representative of Colorado as a whole.

Overall it was an interesting and satisfying experience. I plan to be at least this involved in the next election, too.
