The 2008 Primaries: Candidates Should Come Shake My Hand
Personally, I think the primaries should be like the elections - all on a single day all across the country. They should be held no more than three months before the November election, and campaigning shouldn't be allowed before the start of the election year. In this day and age television and the internet easily allow the candidates' to be seen by the entire country, no matter where the candidates are physically located. There is no reason we need such a long campaign season. Maybe the problem is that I'm tired of the campaign posturing already, and we've still got more than a year to go before the primary.
Anyway, you hear me Sacramento? Change the primary date! And candidates, come on and buy me a cup of coffee and try to win my vote (I'm registered as "decline to state", so both Republicans and Democrats are welcome to try to woo me - black, no sugar please).
