Christmas Caucus?

With South Carolina and Florida Republicans jockeying for "first Southern Primary" status, Democrats, too, will have some decisions to make. If the South Carolina primary is moved back to Jan. 19th as proposed here, then New Hampshire could be as early as January 15th. To avoid the holiday rush, that could push the Iowa caucuses to pre-holiday season in December of 2007. Okay, I was willing to spend January in Iowa, but adding a presidential primary to my December calendar is a bit much.

Tell you what. Let's just all vote now and call it a day. This has gotten beyond ridiculous. Florida and South Carolina seem determined to fight this out despite promises of sanctions (at least for Florida) from the RNC and the DNC.
