Dufault, who works on Sen.

But by the time the class was over and the 18-year-old senior had gone through a mock caucus led by 1996 Davis graduate Jeremie Dufault, Ramos could barely keep a smile off his face.
That was precisely the goal of Dufault, a Harvard University law graduate who is working locally for Illinois Sen.Barack Obama's Democratic presidential campaign.Dufault wants to educate young people -- no matter what their party preference -- about the caucus process, which he feels most people don't understand.
"A lot of people have heard that they need to caucus for their vote to count, but there are a lot of people who have never done it before," Dufault said.
On Thursday, Dufault walked into the classroom of his former Spanish teacher, Jorge Rodriguez, and shed his "Obama '08" button.
Dufault has given similar presentations to various local high school classes throughout the week.
Once each student had signed in and Dufault provided a brief explanation of the caucus process, he asked those supporting the various Republican and Democratic candidates to congregate in different parts of the classroom. (On Saturday, Republican and Democratic Party caucuses will be held in separate locations.)
"Another part of the caucus is you stand around and wait for a long time," Dufault joked."People stand and look around for someone who knows what to do."
He told the students that they would be among the more knowledgeable participants if they attend the Saturday caucuses.
Dufault instructed the Obama and Clinton groups to pick a speaker, who would have one minute to persuade the undecided students why they should support their preferred candidate.
Then, with eight students supporting Obama and five for Clinton, Dufault assigned delegates to represent each group -- three for Obama and one for Clinton.

Jeremie Dufault, who is here working for Obama, agreed with Sandoval that the Illinois senator's race would not play a significant role in how Hispanics vote.

Dufault, a Davis High School and Harvard University law graduate, worked for Obama in the Nevada caucuses last month, which Clinton won.
"I think the reason Latinos turn out for (Clinton) is not racial animosity but they have a history with the Clintons," Dufault said.
