Stand for Change - Obama won Kaufman Caucus

I spent the better part of my Saturday at the democratic caucus convention for Kaufman County. It was a pretty exciting day, which included some raised voices and heightened tempers. But in the end, everyone seemed to unite as democrats and pronounce their support for whomever ends up being the final candidate for the party.

Our county representation resulted in a state delegate breakdown of 15 Obama and 9 Clinton delegates that will be heading to the state convention in Austin held from June 5-7th. You know, personally the most important thing to me is to support the democratic candidate no matter who it is, so I was happy to leave the convention with a sense of unity within the people attending.

Is anyone thinking of good tricks to play on significant others or family for April fool’s day? My ‘favorite’ aunt, Valerie, will be celebrating her 50th birthday on April 1st – she was 11 when I was born, and that REALLY makes me feel old. I can’t imagine how she feels. =)
