In the fine tradition of passing the buck, let me ask y'all what my BFF sort of asked me this morning: any thoughts about the unfolding presidential brouhaha?
My quick ideas:
I was surprised Obama won in Iowa.
I was pissed about the big deal made of Clinton's show of emotion.
I was surprised Clinton won in New Hampshire.
Ummm, where the hell did Mike Huckabee come from?
Who the hell are the candidates for the two big parties going to be?
And showcasing my political ignorance: What is the big deal about caucuses and primaries? I know what they are. I understand to a certain extent why they're important for judging the proverbial lay of the land, but it seems like a lot of time and effort are expended on these things. Is it worth it?
Thoughts? Observations? School me!
