The Real Deal

Dave and I attended the first ever Seward County Democratic Caucus at the Seward Civic Center this afternoon. It was a great experience. There were 267 people there, many registering to vote. The crowd was quite a bit larger than expected, although I guess there was really no way to know how many to expect. Everything went along smoothly, even with the O-Bam-A and Hil-la-ry chants that made their way across the crowds periodically.
I am so very proud of Dave! He volunteered (after being pushed a bit) to make a speech in support of Hillary and I have to say it was the best one, and I am not the only one who thought it was best. I wish we could have had it tape recorded, but I didn't think to bring my camera. My new camera has a voice recorder, but I don't know how it works yet, so I probably would not have captured his speech anyway.
Preliminary results are indicating Obama by a large margin. I don't have the Seward County numbers yet, but I think it was closer here. Either candidate will have my full support!

Interesting process for the party to select the presidential candidate. Nice to see democracy practiced in the heartland of America. Too bad we weren't able to hear Dave's speech.
