LIVE Inside the Washington Caucuses: Madness
I was not prepared for this. None of the organizers at our area were.
We ran out of chairs.
We ran out of sign in sheets (had to send someone to the copier for more).
We ran out of pens.
We ran out of tables.
We are out of everything here except for people. It feels like practically the whole neighborhood is here. It's really amazing. We have young and old, black and white, gay and straight. So many people came that I had to turn myself around constantly just so that people could hear me speak.
I had to climb up on top of the table and shout. I felt like I was under siege as people peppered me with questions and pleas for more sign in forms.
We're just tallying the final sign in numbers now, so I've got to finish running the precinct caucus. But I will check back in after the proceedings have finished here with a more complete report.
