| Official DC Democratic Caucuses Held Today
Washington Post reports on the D.C. Democratic Caucuses, which are being held today. The previous “primary” was non-binding and was simply a protest.
Unlike the nonbinding “beauty pageant” contest in January, in which Dean tallied 43 percent to Sharpton’s 34 percent, today’s results will determine how many delegates from the city each candidate will have at the Democratic National Convention in Boston in July.
“The real political marbles are at stake [Saturday],” D.C. Democratic Party Chairman A. Scott Bolden said. “It’s a wide-open race, more today than on January 13.”
Polls close at 4 PM.

Thanks for signing in,
Now you can comment. (Click here should you choose to sign out.)
As you post your comment, please mind our simple comment policy: we welcome all perspectives, but require that comments be both civil and respectful. We also ask that you avoid the extensive use of profanity, racist terms (neither of which we consider civil or respectful), and other boorish language.
We reserve the right to delete any comment, and to prohibit you from commenting on this site, if we feel you have broached this policy. As a courtesy, we will first send you an email noting a violation so you understand the boundaries. This will occur only once, however, and should we ban you from our comment forums we expect that ban to be permanent.
We also will frown upon those who suggest that we ban other individuals for voicing unpopular opinions, should those opinions be voiced in a civil and respectful manner. The point of our comment threads is to provide a forum for spirited though civil and respectful discourse … it is not to provide a forum in which everyone will agree with your point of view.
If you can live by these rules, welcome aboard. If not, then we’re sorry it didn’t work out, and thanks for visiting The Command Post.
