Leaving now for the caucus site...
We're not scheduled to start until 3 PM, but I think it's going to be a mad house and I want a front row seat. It's pretty weird to be a Democrat in Wyoming and actually have something to do beyond picketing Cheney's MacMansion on the golf course.

I'll post some impressions when I get back.

5. Well, THAT was fun!!
I'd guess it was at least 70-30 Obama when I left, but the final count is being done now. I'd be very suprised if it drops below 60-40, but I don't think even 100-0 would get the extra delegate in Obama's column.

Long time D's in this county were literally in tears. The site had to be moved to the biggest venue in town and there was a huge overflow. As to be expected in a state where civility is prized and being uncivil is not tolerated the whole thing was admirably collegial. It was VERY clear that each contender has strong, passionate support, but everyone made certain to clap at least a little bit for each of the supporting speeches. There seemed to be a LOT more clapping, shouting and sign waving for the Obama speeches, though.

We used to hold the county Democratic meetings at a table in the back of one of the restaurants in town; I think we'll need a bigger table...
