Democrat presidential primary abroad

I've been following the Presidential primaries pretty closely. Clinton or Obama is the talk of London. My excitement took a new turn this weekend when I found out that I can vote, live and in person, in the Democratic primary on 5 February. All I need to do is bring my passport to the London poling place, conveniently located just down the street from our flat, and I get to vote.

My vote is even counted - something I feared wouldn't be the case if I tried absentee voting through Texas. Apparently there are 22 Democrat delegates representing Americans living abroad. Information is available at www.votefromabroad.org. Now our delegates are worth more than Florida's. How's that for a dimpled chad?
