A Bizarre Process
by

DES MOINES — I’m here at a Democratic caucus site at the First Presbyterian Church of Des Moines where they are doing an initial candidate viability test because if a candidate doesn’t get 15 percent, his or her supporters have to go with another candidate. <p><p>What a bizarre process. They went through the church pews row by row and each person had to count out loud what number they were. After several minutes of this, the woman running the caucus said there was a miscount, so they had to do it all over again. There are 161 voters at this caucus site, so the viability threshold is 25 people. They now have 30 minutes to divide into preference groups. Clinton and Edwards look strongest at first glance.
