Foreign journalists

I met with a group of correspondents from Turkey, Austria, Romania, Italy, Albania, and Estonia this morning. I was told they wanted to learn more about Colorado's role in American politics. So I started with basics, talking innocently enough about the electoral college, competitive elections, etc.

And then I kept getting interrupted with questions about superdelegates and candidate viability thresholds in caucuses. These reporters knew their stuff. More to the point, they knew our stuff, much more so than many American political journalists I've met.
