Regular readers know I'm pretty fond of Barack Obama and, to a lesser extent, John McCain around here. I have reasons, such as my desire for a transcendental presidency with a new team of experts and thinkers, better global diplomacy and inspiring Generations X and Y in a way previously thought to be impossible (in Obama's case). But the most important thing is that you go out, research your issues and the candidates and make your own decision.
Here in Minnesota, you need to arrive at your caucus location sometime around 6:30. Presidential voting begins sharply at 7 p.m. It is more like a meeting than a traditional election, but you get to vote by paper ballot and every caucus I've ever been to has been very friendly to newcomers. To find your caucus location, go to http://www.dfl.org/ for Democratic sites and to http://www.mngop.org/ for Republican sites. If you don't live in Minnesota search for your state's secretary of state website and find out there.
Check out the sites I'll be monitoring today:
