    Women's Political Caucus was running high, they had a teach in on how to run a campaign.  It was highly informative.  And yet, each woman that ran had to start from scratch.  She was expected to bring her own, if you will, to the campaign.  The caucus itself did have a pac and it vetted candidates, but I would have to say that its support was iffy at best.  It did provide a network of sorts to pull from a volunteer group and that was an asset.  And the network itself formed a donor list that was a start.  

    But, inherent within the boundaries of human nature, the caucus displayed its own flaws.  Cliques were rampant, possibly to hoard assets like donor lists and such.  One did not get a huge amount of knowledge about the political state of the state from that group (and I am speaking specifically of Missouri now).  Even though I recognize the humanness of such behavior it seem remarkably self defeating.
