I'm off to the Nevada caucus [UPDATE] [UPDATE II]


oh, yay... if i'm so moved or have the opportunity, i'm going to give a short speech airing my opinions which, no doubt, will earn my escort outta there... more later...


ok, here's how it went... in my precinct, 24 people stood up for hillary, 22 for obama, and 11 for edwards, which, by caucus delegate-allocation rules, gave 2 delegates to hillary, 2 to obama, and 1 to edwards... oh, yeah < cough, cough >... i stood up for edwards, not cuz i happen to be an edwards supporter, he just happened to be the least objectionable choice... < sigh > not an auspicious start, i'll admit...

i did strike up a good conversation with a couple who were in the edwards group, and we shared our deep concerns over what's happening to the constitution, rule of law, and accountability... i'll probably arrange to meet them for coffee sometime this week...


and, of course, hillary took the state...
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton beat Sen. Barack Obama in the Nevada Democratic caucuses today, while former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney prevailed earlier in the Nevada Republican caucuses.

With nearly 70 percent of the vote counted, Clinton led with 51 percent to 45 percent for Obama (Ill.). Former senator John Edwards trailed far behind with five percent.

i can't say i'd vote for a republican before i'd vote for hillary, but it's close... i can't look at her list of foreign policy and national security advisers and take any comfort that a goddam thing will change with her in the oval office... 'course, i can't look at that same list for any goddam one of 'em, repub OR dem, and not want to hurl my cookies...
