Caucus!, originally uploaded by Roy Janik.

at the caucus! Exciting!

and a little bit later...

Things did get a little crazier, but not bad. All in all it took me an hour to get through the caucus. They split us into obama and clinton supporters to speed things up. It was clear there were more Obama supporters, but not by a super crazy margin.

Aaaand when do the opposing candidate's supporters divide into groups and burst into song and dance????

They don't. I think that's only in Iowa. Or at least, the Texas caucus doesn't work that way.

They did actually split us into two groups, so that when we signed in the vote tallying could go faster, but there was no singing.

I wouldn't have been able to keep myself from snapping in an aggressive manner...

the weirdest part of it was being reminded that all elementary school cafeterias smell like bland pizza and warm milk.

there was a very clear and distinct obama margin in my precinct. so much so that some of considered becoming clinton supporters so that we could get in the hillary line and more quickly get out of the cold!

I'm jealous. I'd love a caucus.

But what the hell? 24 hours and still only 40% counted? Sheesh.
