    Yeah, great idea...probably leading other states to follow suit and everyone jockeying for the earliest primary. That will sure encourage candidates to be clearer on whose asses they need to kiss in order to win those primaries...no conflicting goals there.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Make all state primaries occur on the same day. Problem solved.

    I have wondered about the consequences that would have. It would almost certainly change the electoral process fundamentally and I am unsure that the positive effects would outway.

    Iowa and New Hampshire, for no particular reason, set the tone for a drawn-out, excruciating electoral campaign. Candidates spend more time in Iowa, pretending to like corn, than they do in almost any other state.

    That depends on what you see as being the problem. If the problem is that too few big money backed candidates (capable of running multi-state campaigns from the start) are in the race then it is a great idea.

    California is a super expensive state to campaign in so both parties would be foolish to go along with the plan because it promotes those who are the most corrupt, and they can stop it.
    The American Left never had the right to try to control minds or conversations.... that is abuse....and it has to be over.

    Commonsense solutions to our complicated problems as a nation. Let's lead the way. Independent and Dems alike.
