everyone understood the challenge. unlike iowa, we'd never done a caucus on this scale, one that mattered nationally before. if you talked with iowans back then, as i did, they would have told you we probably weren't up to the task. after three tries it's fair to ask if they weren't right. turnout is still low. confusion and frustration continue. those problems could be addressed with a primary, but though we've flirted with the idea, our lawmakers have been reluctant. if we want the national attention to continue and it's likely we do, we may have to take another look at that alternative. because with reid and his influence exiting the scene. a caucus culture in nevada still a work in progress, it's likely the national parties could be taking a long hard look at our early spot on the calendar. and it's not hard to conclude ed pearce kolo 8 news now. from the deep south to the northeast... violent and deadly thorugh several towns. we have a look at the aftermath.
