The caucus system is a great democratic process that gives every neighborhood and community a specific voice in party politics and rewards those who are willing to get involved and get informed. But the system is only as good as the people who participate. It was disturbing last week to see how many aspiring delegates refused to tell us frankly who they would support or not support. It was equally sad to see the voters meekly accept this equivocating and cast votes for ... who knows what?

Next time, let's vote only for people who have taken the trouble to inform themselves and will tell us frankly where they stand.
