@30 Tell that to Texas.
May 24 Aaron commented on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Lead in Pointless Washington State Primary.
The voters that self selected in that they either didn't know that their primary ballot didn't "count" or didn't care vs. those that found the time to participate in caucus strike me as likely more representative of the general election voters, so yeah, as a Hillary caucus participant that didn't bother mail in my ballot, I see the result as significant. But only as an analog. What that really long sentence highlights for me is how stratified the caucus participants were. The general result will drive that point home, the caucuses yielded a poor result. They are a barrier to participation and bad for democracy. Have a book club meeting if you really want to have a discussion.

Nice that SRT has the resources to indulge in this kind of navel gazing.

Party counts.
Mar 26 Aaron commented on Happy Washington State Democratic Caucus Day!.
My sister's 37th District precinct is 2-1 Bernie vs. Hillary delegates, mine is 4-2. Hillary is doing better than I expected. Bernie may get his trifecta, but I don't think he's going to be on a trajectory to close the gap with today's result. That's my straw poll.
Mar 25 Aaron commented on No One Can Stop You From Talking As Long As You Want at Your Caucus Tomorrow.
I mean, some people have submitted affidavits and will not be there at all, and they get counted while not having to suffer the insufferable. How do I get into that category since I didn't do such an affidavit?
Mar 25 Aaron commented on No One Can Stop You From Talking As Long As You Want at Your Caucus Tomorrow.
I want to sign my pledge and leave as soon as possible. How do I do that so that I'm counted, but don't have to stick around for all the posturing?
Mar 23 Aaron commented on Support the Real Progressive.
You want to see the real shit storm, go over to the Caucus for Hillary version and see the choking comments from all the Bernie supporters. They are really having a hard time with this not winning thing.
Mar 23 Aaron commented on Seattle's Revolution.
@15: Yes, I read it. What the Bernie supporters fail to account for in citing that aspect of the various polls is that he's still unlikely to win in the primary. Further, we haven't really seen the kind of negative attention turned towards Sanders that Clinton has been subjected to for decades. Fine, feel the Bern, but try to remember you are trying to win the Democratic nomination, and in the end the part of that leads to the General is Democratic, not the nominee. Sorry, parties still count. Try not to break this one (like the way the GOP is breaking) while you attempt to gain the nomination, and don't be too sore when you don't get what you want.

Imagined by the right wing, and apparently enthusiastically validated by the activist left, without regard for the very likely possibility that she will be the candidate we need to beat Trump in the fall. Some encouragement:…
