The caucus system is horribly flawed in many ways, but there are also some small benefits. One of them is that you get to see who is standing in your corner--literally. Also, you get to see who their second choice is.
I'm not sure why it's so edifying to see this written out in in another article about caucusing in Council Bluffs, but it seems to legitimize what I noted over and over again: "Hillary is no one’s second choice." I don't think she's the safe, electable choice that so many in the "I don't care who it is as long as it's a Democrat" camp seem to think she is.
The article effectively illustrates another point, too. Each vote counts.
