    Sure. Caucuses are just a way to hijack and nullify the popular vote.

    As is the Electoral College. But, I suspect you didn't mind when Gore won the popular vote in 2000, but lost the presidency.

    I was almost going to participate in the caucus in Texas in support of Obama, but decided not to. Hey, if you are so interested in participating in elections – getting your voice heard, go join the caucus and be a delegate.

    I caucused for Obama in Iowa this year and for Kerry in 2004. Caucuses are extremely effective in party building, but according to the Clinton campaign they don't count.
