Aleks 'n Barack = Buds!

So guess where Aleks is right now?

Yup! At this Washington Democratic Caucus of the 45th Legislative District! I wonder if he's the youngest elected precinct delegate there, since he's just a few months past his 18th birthday.

He got cold feet last week, since the thrill of his election at the February 9th Washington precinct caucuses had worn off a bit, and since he couldn't bring anyone with him to this meeting. But thanks to persistent and amazingly nice Obama volunteers, he's there now!

I just saw this photo on the metroblogging Seattle website. Looks like there's a huge turn-put at the caucus. Phew!

I begged him to take a camera and his laptop and guest blog a moment-by-moment impression throughout the day (which promises to be a lot of hurry up and wait, especially with this huge turn-out!), but he flashed his book on existentialist theory at me, rolled his eyes, and insisted that he'd rather read.

I have a feeling that this is a very apropos beginning to Aleks' future International (OK, so this is national) Relations major at UW.

And for your viewing edification today, I am happy to present you with this little Obaba-ditty!
