The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

New Hampshire and Iowa; Nevada and South Carolina
The DNC enacted the long-discussed and debated idea of mixing up the schedule of early Presidential primaries to have a more racially diverse group of voters pick the early favorite.

New Hampshire and Iowa are something like 95% white, and that just doesn't make sense in a country where Democrats get a large portion of their general election votes from minorities. You end up with a nominee like John Kerry, who doesn't reflect the desire of the party overall.

So I say well done to Howard Dean and the DNC for forcing this through. With NV and SC in the mix, this will be a much better process. New Hampshire is already crying bloody murder, but they're just protecting their state's financial well-being, and you can't really blame them. For the good of the country, this needs to happen.
