  •  Making Nevada second a stupid idea. (0+ / 0-)

    I don't like the idea of Nevada holding a caucus after Iowa and before New Hampshire.  I support keeping the tradition of allowing Iowa and New Hampshire first dibs at choosing presidential candidates.

      ... your support more than mildly confusing

      neither state is representative of the nation as a whole

    •  Screw tradition (0+ / 0-)

      I think California so go first...and you can just ignore the fact that I live in California.

      Let's just call Iowa and New Hampshire a Wambulance, they got no right to insist on a disproportionate share in picking candidates.  Small states already have far too much power in this country.

      Either some sort of random selection or rotation for early polling dates needs to be set at the federal level.  Or we should just have a national primary day - like in May, which is what I'd opt for.  The damn campaign season was already too long and it has now become ridiculous.  

      •  California isn't representative of the country. (0+ / 0-)

        I don't think California should be the first state to hold a primary, for the same reason that none of the ten biggest states in the country should be allowed to hold a primary first.

        I support making the ten biggest states the last to hold a primary on the first Tuesday of June.
