15. Sorry - calling bullshit on that
Edited on Tue Feb-19-08 10:39 PM by RiverStone
As a Washingtonian - I already participated in the caucuses.

The primary on the Dems side is a beauty contest that does not reflect many of us who already participated in the OFFICIALLY recognized process. I did not vote. Why vote at all - it DOES NOT COUNT.

The only reason anybody is voting is the pukes DO COUNT their primary and all names still appear on the ballots. Why? Ask the Secretary of State here in WA??? Yea, it's fucked up.

It is confusing that each state party does it differently; but please don't suggest this vote is more legit than the legit caucuses.
