1. Our State Dem
elected leaders - county chairs, committee people etc had a dinner and caucus training in Cheyenne last weekend.

I was told by several people, the breakdown among those attending was about 75% Obama, 25% Clinton. Our state party chair announced two months ago he is supporting Obama and is absolutely opposed to Clinton. Made quite a stir here. He's a super delegate.

Seems about 60-65% Obama, 35-40% Clinton here in NW Wyoming from calls I have made.

This is totally not official!!! And I have a bias as an Obama supporter, so take that into account. I may unintentionally pay more attention to things I want to hear, as many do.

3. suddenly "important"
Isn't it amazing how states that didn't used to "count," because they are (1) caucus states, (2) small states, or (3) predominantly Republican States are so important now that every delegate counts?


My state (South Dakota) is all those things too, with one more disadvantage thrown in--it, with Montana are the last states to select delegates.


(OK, I know Puerto Rico selects delegates even later--and in an irony, even though Puerto Ricans can't vote at all for President in the general election--Puerto Rico selects more delegates than either South Dakota or Wyoming).

My sense is that Obama is doing better than Clinton here too.

2. What are the rules for the Wyoming caucuses?
Do you have to be there in person? Can you have a proxy? Where are they located?

4. has Obama been to Wyoming?
If the caucus training results were lop-sided for Obama, it's pretty reasonable to think he will win easily. That's how it was in NE. I think also, what state party leaders are saying might be more important than what I thought. For instance in my state, all the top Dems (both of them :)) are in Obams's corner and in Ohio, they came out for Clinton. So take both of those things as very good signs. I hope this will be as big a win as Idaho.
