Too cold to go out today. Stayed in. Kept the heater on. Wrote, and read reactions to the Iowa caucus.
My only thoughts are that the process is ridiculously outdated, undemocratic and bizarre. It was also gratifying that John Edwards came in second (though sadly not first) and surprising that everybody was surprised by Obama’s victory. His fundraising alone shows that plenty of powerful folks want a not-Clinton option, and Clinton’s own poor performance accounts for the rest.
(Neither Clinton nor Obama really impress me. Both are candidates of a major portion of the establishment. Neither offer a particularly progressive message. Neither are trustworthy when it comes to the key point of sticking up for basic principles and beliefs.)
