Get Me Out

I'm getting sick of the Polk County Convention Center. It's here where all those 2,600 credentialed members of the media for the caucus are hiding. The lobby is packed, the Google/YouTube lounge is getting crowded (though the white leather couch I'm on now is very comfortable), and the main media room is churning out dozens of live broadcasts at once.

I just caught word that Senator Joe Biden is in town with an event at 4:30, and with absolutely nothing for someone like me to do that's any fun, I'm itching to escape and find the Senator.

Less than three hours until the caucuses begin and I'm eager to drive to Harding Middle School and see democracy start trickling in the door and filling up the auditorium.
