Are ya voting? What do you think will happen? Who's your favorite? Excited, nervous, apathetic?

I'm caucusing tomorrow. It's the first caucus Colorado has ever had. From what I understand, you stand up, sit down, enter the room, leave the room, wear a hat, toot a horn, or something equally puzzling depending on who you're voting for. At least, that's how they did it in Iowa when my sister went to her caucus. I will report, assuming I survive.

I'm still officially undecided, and may remain that way if there is a benefit to having wild-card voters in the pool. More important to me at this point than presidential is my state senator race. We have two good candidates and I have to pick one. As far as the other races, I'll have to see if I can learn something.

Yes, We Can! - Si, Se Puede!

The "Yes We Can" song is a great song. Play it and cry. Here's a link to the song & video, featuring a star cast, by Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. Inspired by Barack Obama's 'Yes We Can' speech.

What's the difference between a Caucus and a Primary? We just have elections!

Don't worry, I only learned this myself. If you live in a poor state or one with a sparse population, it's too expensive to hold a primary, where people simply go and vote. So instead, you hold a lot of these little meetings and decide as a group. I'll know more tonight after I go to one. :)

Caucus: A meeting of the local members of a political party especially to select delegates to a convention or register preferences for candidates running for office.

There's two things I will never understand.
1. The rules to cricket
2. The American election system
