    To those not especially fond of Joe Biden.....

    Iowa has spoken and seems to agree with us as Biden came in 4th place. Rob

    I am suspicious of the Iowa caucus too because of the fiasco.

    The requirement to provide actual vote totals to the public seems to have been a step too far for the Iowa Democrats. I understand that in previous election years they were able to provide delegate numbers within an hour or two. Other than transparency, I wonder what's changed?

    Too much smoke in the smoke-filled back room to properly "count"?

    I find him creepy. He thinks he is our gift. I would have loved there to have been witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial and they could have
    started with his family. The more I hear the more corrupt they sound. I saw him lash out at a reporter and he did the poke poke with his
    finger on the guys chest. So arrogant, don't mess with me gesture. He is a bully with high beam teeth. Not my choice.

    Creepy is right. Who sneaks up behind strangers and kisses them on the head?

    Nevada has caucuses and it would take a legislative change to get rid of them. So we are having early voting with them and it’s a cluster f***. Not enough volunteers and many don’t know how to use the iPads. No paper ballots. If you don’t choose 3 people they don’t count it. People waiting in line up to 4 hours. Many leave because they cannot wait. Biden is really tanking.

    So, these caucuses aren't "elections" by any real measure.

    No they aren't. If they were one-man-one-vote-without -discussion elections they would be primary elections. They are not primary elections.

    I think the caucus process is interesting. But in our age of fast news as fast as can be, I suppose the caucus process which asks people to gather, talk anout their candidates, re-group, talk about the candidates, re-group again makes no one happy.
