Great News for NM Democratic Party (UPDATED)

You’re not the only idiots! Yay! (UPDATE: OK so it looks like my birth state got it together and straightened things  out. New Mexico still has not posted final results for our Super Tuesday caucus. Congratulations Huskers. You did the right thing.) After spending most of my time fuming over the inept manner the NM Democratic leadership handled last Tuesday’s Presidential preference caucus I discovered that the Cornhusker State Democratic Party came down with a case of the Mismanaged Caucus Flu. Does ANYONE in the party leadership anywhere actually read, listen to, or watch the news? Democrats have had RECORD turnout in every contest thus far. Do they actually care?

1:52 p.m.

The decision to have only one caucus site in all of Sarpy County appears to have been a bad one.

Reports are coming in that the caucus site in Papillion is overhwhelmed.

Thousands have turned up, when organized expected only several hundred.

They are still registering.

Traffic is backed up on Highway 370.

“All of Sarpy County is at this school and they’ve run out of registration forms,” said Cindy Perich, of Papillion.

She had taken today off to caucus on behalf of Barack Obama. But, she left. It was too chaotic.

“It’s totally unorganized. I’m totally disappointed with the (Nebraska) Democratic Party,” said Perich.

One Response to Great News for NM Democratic Party (UPDATED)

    According to the demographics, I should be voting for Hillary Clinton: I’m a white, 60-year-old, highly educated woman from the Northeast. But I’m voting for Obama. I’ve waited all my life for a viable woman candidate for the presidency, but this is not the right woman. I want a woman of the highest ability and virtue, who would serve as a glorious role model to all young women. Hillary Clinton is not that woman.
    She rode into power with her husband, and together they’ve acquired a long and seriously flawed history of self-serving and secretive financial and political dealings. The most cursory research will prove that true. She started out her political life supporting the racist Barry Goldwater. She is as comfortable with deception and trickery as George Bush. When I hear woman saying, “Oh, but that’s how you get things done in Washington,” I literally cringe.
    I am passionately supporting Barack Obama. He can beat the Republicans; she cannot. Obama has attracted Independents and even Republicans to his camp, and in a general election they would vote for him, but not for Clinton. Clinton voted for the war, and has never apologized for it. Obama has spoken out against it from the beginning. Obama brings us hope–and not just that. Take a serious look at his ideas and experience.
    Please, I beg of you, Sisters young and old: wait for the right woman. Then we can be proud.
