caucus queen

Last night was standing room only for my precinct. Over 100 people there, many first-timers, like myself, looking around thinking, "I get to vote twice? really?"

It was split about even, Obama-mites and Clinton voters. Awfully out of my skin to be in line for Clinton. But there I was, thinking in my head, "just think of the glass ceiling! A more qualified candidate who is a woman!"

Than I headed over to Ladies Night Out, where some girlfriends gathered together to shower my prego friend with diapers and baby advice.

Just call me the caucus queen.

you go girl! I didn't caucus and couldn't bring myself to vote for Hillary - but Curt did!! Although he started feeling uneasy as she began winning!

wow-- are you Catholic? Don't you feel pretty badly voting for a pro-abort? I could never bring myself to do that.

No, this was a case where clearly the popular vote did not matter. I really wanted to prolong the race for the democratic nomination. This would only serve to divide the democrats and solidify the republicans. Which, I believe it has. I absolutely will vote pro-life in the fall. However, I have very mixed feelings about voting to maintain the course with the war.
