Bacus Caucusssss

Caucus was a total mess, the place was mobbed. My small district had 71 people show up.

Original Breakdown
47 - Obama
17 - Clinton
5 - Didn't understand the instructions and wrote no-one (or undecided)
1 - Kuchinich
1 - Gravel (me!)

Final Tally
50 - Obama
20 - Clinton
1 - Kuchinich

Obama got 6 delagates and Clinton got 2.

I gave a speech about the important of getting Gravel delagates to send a message about somethings that really were important to us - getting rid of stupid drug laws, getting out of Iraq quickly and allow Iraq to use the money to build Iraq and not American corporations who are profiteering greatly, and allowing same sex marriage (not just some candy-coated 'civil union crap'). He also also outspoken on closing down Guantanamo. He stands for a lot more but I only wanted to highlight the differences between him and Clinton/Obama as that is what sending a message would be about. I should have dragged people to the caucus with me, we had enough people in this household to get him 1 delagate.

I didn't convince anyone, but what really saddend me that some people didn't even know who Gravel was. That is a shame that our news media should not be allowed to live down.
