Many Democrats I know wish to support the candidate that would be more likely to win the general election. That would appear to be Barack Obama. By a good margin.
According to CNN, Obama stands a far better chance against Republican John McCain in the generel election:
A Time magazine poll, conducted February 1-4, also shows a dead heat between Clinton and McCain. Each was backed by 46 percent of those polled.
Sen. Barack Obama believes he can do better, arguing "I've got appeal that goes beyond our party."
In the CNN poll, Obama leads McCain by 8 points, 52 percent to 44 percent. That's outside the margin of error, meaning that Obama has the lead.
The nation now looks to Tacoma (and the rest of Washington State) to determine who will represent the Democrats. Tacomans often say they want to be relevant in the state and in the nation. Here's our shot.
Make sure to find your caucus in Tacoma (or Pierce County) and participate on Saturday, February 9th at 1:00 p.m.
The best guide I found from either party was Obama's Caucus finder. Pretty high tech, If Hillary has one, please link to it.
But what's the motivation to attend a caucus? Why not just stay home? What's the difference? Perhaps the below Coulter clip will provide an example of how debased our political system has become:
