They're undemocratic, they're complicated, they're confusing. So why would anyone love a caucus?
The chairman of the Texas Democratic Party told the Dallas Morning News why he doesn't think his party should eliminate its presidential caucus:
"People who are not political junkies may come away feeling that this is a real contact blood sport - and I couldn't blame them," said state Democratic Party Chairman Boyd Richie.
"But it's a terrific party-building tool," he said. "We now have hundreds of thousands of new people we had no way of reaching before."
Translation: It's all about building a mailing list.
