Caucus Schmaucus

cau·cus /ˈkɔkəs/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[kaw-kuhs] Pronunciation Key -
a meeting of party leaders to select candidates, elect convention delegates, etc.

Yeah..... I don't know about everyone else, but this is my first exposure to the word. This week alone, I came across 'caucus' twice: once for the Youth Caucus held in Singapore, and the other one is the NEA Black Caucus when I read about it in Chris Gardner's biography "The Pursuit of Happyness'.

So funny how there's something totally new to you and you experience it - in this case, the word 'caucus' - twice in seperate and totally unrelated events.
