Last night I drove to the Hampton Middle School to the democrats caucus. I’m pretty sure that if there had actually been a choice of candidates there would have been more people from my district than just 4. But, despite this, it was fun. There were goodies to eat and everyone was really nice. We watched a live streaming video of President Obama who answered a few (really canned) questions from Iowans around the state. I’ll be honest, I more listened than watched as it was on a little computer screen, I already know what the president looks like and I was busy knitting.
Somehow, I ended-up on the Committee of Committees. I agreed to be on it simply because I loved the name. I didn’t take any pictures because, quite simply, there weren’t enough people there and I would have been inclined to ask everyone if it was ok to publish their picture. I just didn’t feel that it was worth it, ya know?
The Republican caucus was one of the closest ones in history. I have to admit, I’m sort of glad that Rick Santorum did well, if only for the fact that he put in a lot of time in the state talking to people one on one driving around in his pick-up truck. I don’t actually want him to become president mind you, but it does go to show you that putting in the time, not just running tv ads like Rick Perry did, will get you a long way here!
