Iowa Progress: Slate Misses The Point On Iowa City Referendum

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress

Iowa City is holding a referendum on November 6 over whether to
continue to allow people aged 19 and 20 to visit bars. Opponents of
underage drinking are fighting to pass the referendum, underaged
drinkers, specifically University of Iowa students, are getting
mobilized to oppose it (as is every bar owner within a mile of the Ped
Mall.) Since this is in Iowa, there has already been an obligatory
piece wondering about the effect this might have in the caucuses. In
an article on Slate, Christopher Beam seems to think that this is good
for Barack Obama because students will be registered in time for the
caucuses. Beam neglects the two important facts. First and most
importantly, Beam doesn't realize that you can register at the
caucuses.
