My caucus in Red Wing MN....Bernie won 343-259!!!!!!

This was my first time to caucus and there was a HUGE crowd. It was difficult for everyone to get in the room...it was in a cafeteria in a middle school. Everyone was saying the turnout was unprecedented...much larger than 2008.

Unlike some other caucus states you do get a small piece of paper with the candidates listed and you mark your choice and put it in an envelope.

It was somewhat chaotic, but I didn't get the feeling that anyone left or didn't get to vote.

Now at 39, 724, 771. Bernie's wild idea...@ 6:38 PM Goal is 40,000,000. UPDATED.

We're gonna make it well before midnight!

The media talks non-stop about how Bernie can't get the black vote...

And so far he hasn't. But if he got the nomination, who would most black people vote for?

Did anyone get the email from Bernie showing the contributions as they happen?

It's mind-boggling!

Robert Reich on playing it safe...

This man is so wise...I wonder why he doesn't run for office? He nails it in this article.

Instead of “Yes we can,” many Democrats have adopted a new slogan this election year: “We shouldn’t even try.”

We shouldn’t try for single-payer system, they say. We’ll be lucky if we prevent Republicans from repealing Obamacare.

We shouldn’t try for a $15 an hour minimum wage. The best we can do is $12 an hour.

We shouldn’t try to restore the Glass-Steagall Act that used to separate investment and commercial banking, or bust up the biggest banks. We’ll be lucky to stop Republicans from repealing Dodd-Frank.
