  •  Enough with this nonsense about caucuses (0+ / 0-)

    Clinton had the opportunity to object to caucuses in 2007. I didn't hear her complaining about them, then. Frankly, I thought that the caucuses would go for her, since they're historically dominated by political insiders, who Clinton had a lot of support from. But then, a funny thing happened. Obama, the ultimate organizer, realized how caucuses work and realized that he could get big wins by getting more people to show up at caucuses. For whatever reason, Clinton chose not to do this, despite having the money to get tons of people to caucuses and educate them about the process, as Obama did. Why should we penalize Obama for understanding the rules and building grassroots support?

    And anyway, Obama has won more primaries than Clinton.
