I just got back from our Caucus and the turn out was HUGE. Some perspective. 2004 was a record and they had 1,400 people show. This year things are more interesting so they planned for 5,000 people to come. Well they ran out of ballots after 30 minutes. 7:00.

For our little sub-section (Go W-4 P-03!) Obama won with 357 votes to Clinton's 128.

And as I am writing, they are calling MN for Obama. And with 36% reporting, it looks like it will be by quite a margin!

Via NPR, turnout on the Dem side: 150,00 - 200,000

Previous record: 75,000 in 1968 for Hubert Humphrey.
