Primary changes
« on: June 24, 2007, 09:15:28 AM »
So does anybody have any opinions on how the upcoming changes to what order the primary could affect the nominations in 2008?

We got shafted. But it made the candidates focus on Fl, even though the stupid Democratic National Idiot Farm decided to steal our delegates.

South Carolina is starting to look like the widowmaker, but we didn't know that until this week. Thompson just bailed.

Yep, I figure Rudy is next. If he can't carry his home state, he's screwed.

I favor a national primary. Who cares what Iowa thinks?

That's actually an interesting idea. The notion of the campaign-trail worked when candidates had no choice but to go from town-to-town. Now they can reach the world without ever leaving their kitchen if they want. Face time is important though so a complete elimination of the campaign trail would never happen.  The caucuses could still happen and would probably have to.

But a national primary? There's a great deal of sense in that. I suppose that means the system would buck itself on change though.
