So today was another caucus day for Democrats. And look Alaska gets to play too!
So by now you all know that Bernie won all three states up for grabs today.
While I cannot speak for Washington and Hawaii, I can tell you that Bernie won big in Alaska.
In fact the damn lines were several hundred deep even before the place opened up at 9:00 AM to let us all in to West High School where the caucusing took place.
I essentially stayed incognito, though at least one person called me out by name and tried to get me to volunteer to be a delegate.
My daughter was, of course, rubbing it in my face that there was such a huge pro-Bernie crowd.
I actually did interview a couple of young men about why they were supporting Sanders.
The first guy responded with, and I kid you not about this, "I'm too stoned to answer any questions."
I could have left if there, but that is just shoddy journalism, and the next few gentlemen really did have much better answers.
All in all the young people are very fired up, and I certainly hope that they hang onto that enthusiasm even if their candidate is not the eventual nominee.
We certainly need that kind of fire if we are going to keep the Republicans out of the White House.
Update: It looks like Sanders won Washington in a landslide as well.
