This fifteen page report on the relative roles caucuses played as opposed to primaries is well worth the time. It’s important, I believe, to understand just how things work. Well…maybe you really don’t have to know how you car engine works to drive it….
But that approach has certain drawbacks when you apply it to who you support politically.
Read it or not. Up to you.
Who is the author? Here’s a synopsis from Jeralyn at TalkLeft:
Peniel Cronin is the President & CEO of Global Basics and eNameWiz.com. Cronin holds a B.S. in Accounting from Arizona State University and has 16 years experience as an accountant and Director of Marketing for several SMEs.
Cronin directs all strategic development and product/market research and developed the algorithms and database that power the eNameWiz multilingual domain creation and search system.
Representative clients through Global Basics have included the Arizona Office of Tourism, the Nevada Commission on Tourism, the Arizona Shopping Consortium, Shop America Alliance, America West Airlines, Southwest Airlines, AeroMexico and numerous other travel and domain industry organizations. Cronin holds three US & German Patents, several trademarks and numerous copyrights.
Cronin suffers from a disability resulting from a car accident 40 years ago at age 12 which left her “wheelchair bound” for two years, at a time when there were no curb cuts or ramps and nothing was accessible. This is what fueled her passion about the caucus information. She knows what it’s like to be locked-out of the mainstream and to be excluded from full participation in what others take for granted.
