The front page story in the Denver Post today tells about a mixed up idea being put forward to create a Presidential primary election in Colorado separate from our wonderful neighborhood caucus. I just sent this letter to the newspapers in response:

It's being suggested that we have a Presidential primary election in 2008,
followed by our neighborhood caucuses across the state a few weeks later.

This is a bad idea. In Iowa Presidential candidates spend about $40 per
caucus attendee, it would similar here in Colorado if our caucus system
was given the same TLC the Iowa system receives from the Iowa media,
civic leaders, and the major political parties. Instead, we get a stream of
these efforts at reform where none is needed.

Nothing would weaken our caucus system more than splitting it off from
the Presidential race. People who are against this misguided change
should speak out now.
