Never thought much of the caucus process. Used to have it here in Oklahoma, back then I was a registered Dem...went to one caucus and it was a circus, really strange. Next year moved to another precinct and tried to find the location of the caucus, it was impossible to find, even talked with the home (?) where it was being held and their direction led me down dark country roads. I finally realized they didn't want someone they weren't sure of, as in sure how I would vote. Caucuses are easily manipulated. I'm waiting for a real out and out primary to see what shake out.

( I still get a thrill up my leg when spell check doesn't recognize the name/word Obama!)
The thing I like about the caucus format is the likelihood that only interested parties will show up. There is not a great chance that the Shady Hills Retirement center is going to bus in 100 patients and ‘guide’ them through their voting, or worse yet, fill out their absentee ballots for them.
As always I support voter picture ID, a voting day, voter registration rolls, paper ballots, purple thumbs or thumb prints on the voter registration roll, and zero totals releases until all vote totals are reported.
