California moves up primary, confirming front-loading trend

Reply Thu 9 Aug, 2007 08:20 am
The South Carolina move is in direct response to the move by Florida to hold its primary on Jan. 29 (for some strange reason, the article linked by Brand X doesn't mention that salient fact).* There is no way that South Carolina, or New Hampshire and Iowa, will hold separate primaries/caucuses for the Republicans and then a couple of weeks later for the Democrats, so the move by the South Carolina GOP will, in effect, move up the Democratic primaries/caucuses as well.

*EDIT: oh wait, it does. I didn't notice that there was a second page to that article.

This is getting crazier and crazier..

If New Hampshire does jump in front of Iowa, the Edwards and Obama campaigns will feel pretty desperate..

2 possible solutions....

Every state has their primaries on the same day.

Every state has their primary based on when it was introduced into the union. One day separating them.

So the people of Texas and the other states do not get to pick thier candidates. The Iowa and New Hampshire people tell Texas who they can vote for? Sounds very un-American to me.
