The information is helpful for all who may/will be caucusing DFL, and if the Obama "new people into the fold" stories are true, and some may learn by reading this of caucus detail without otherwise knowing, it is worth my time in putting up this post.
The email states:
Now it’s your turn to make change.
On Tuesday, February 5, you will finally have your say in the most exciting, wide-open Democratic presidential race in decades when you go to your DFL precinct caucus to cast your vote on the presidential preference ballot.
Then you can start weighing in on the race to unseat Norm Coleman and the exciting campaigns around our state for Congress and the Minnesota House.

Those who caucused before probably got the same email. This post is for any Crabgrass readers who might be new to the process but with favored candidates and cause to want to caucus this cycle. History will be made whichever presidential candidate of the remaining two reaches the general election. It is a chance to be part of history. That's not my original idea. John Edwards in bowing out noted how his concession left the field poised for history.
Finally, for newbies, the email had an "unsubscribe" link, but not info I could post for readers on how to become mailing list members. I tried parsing back the given link, but got a password protected site portal. As I say, not an insider, I don't have a user name or password, and don't belong there, so I leave it at that. Probably calling DFL central, via a Google of the two sender names above, will indirectly via site-search and parsing back, get such access to the e-mailings, for any newbie reader wanting it.
Try hard, and you may even get a password protected insider-access-authorization -- if you want. I don't need it. It is there. I leave it to others.
