Caucus Day
Michigan's presidential caucus is today. I was at one of the voting sites this morning with my Kucinich shirt on, passing out literature and trying to sway a few last voters. Approximately 50,000 people have already voted online or by mail.

Last evening, I went with a group of seven to the Kucinich rally in Detroit. Rep. John Conyers gave a stirring introduction. Kucinich seemed more relaxed and was more animated and funny than I had seen him in previous appearances. Someone in our group counted about 400 people in the crowd, and apparently there were similar turnouts earlier in the day in Kalamazoo, Muskegon, Greenville, Flint and Pontiac. Kucinich's flight from Spokane, Washington was fogged in, and he apparently arrived in Kalamazoo at 1:15 for his scheduled 12:30 appearance. I'm somewhat mentally exhausted from helping with the campaign for all these months; how hard must it be on the candidates?
