At the Democratic caucus at Wedgwood Elementary School, Jocelyn Cooper, 28, and her live-in boyfriend, Jesse Sankey, 29, showed that intra-party divisions happen even under the same roof.
Sankey backs Hillary Clinton, Cooper backs Barack Obama. Times reporter Haley Edwards heard them debate -- and laugh about it -- as they sat next to each other on a cafeteria bench:
Sankey: "Hillary will get more done in the short run. Obama's got good vision, but ”
Cooper: "That's all you need, though. He'll just be one of 1,000 people running the country, and the people around him will feel that energy.”
Sankey: "But Hillary's more likely to win against McCain. She’s got the corporations “
Cooper: “Just because she accepted their money?”
Sankey: “You’ve got to accept their money.”
Cooper: “You don’t have to sell your soul.”
Sankey: “It’s not selling your soul! That’s such [B.S.]!”
