Thursday 3 January 2008 *Iowa Caucus

Saturday 19 January 2008 *Nevada Precinct Caucuses
Tuesday 22 January 2008 (tentative date) *New Hampshire Primary

Anyone know anything about the accuracy and finality of these dates?

1. Last I read, Mi and FL political leaders are not backing down.
So there will be no delegations to the National conventions. Good. Besides, the political leaders of those states are in the Hillary camp. She will gladly call in both the MI and FL delegations, being that they are hers. All in a spirit of good will. And NH and IA will continue to choose our presidents.

2. I've heard NH's SoS several times and he's said that NH
will maintain it's first in the nation primary status- as codified into NH law.

5. By what right.
I demand Hawaii be first. What gaul. Its one nation. I hope this conflict will start all over again, but this time , more states need gang up on the arrogrance of HN.

3. And the case of Nevada
Since it's a caucus, can go ahead of NH, but must remain behind IA.

4. The early MI primary has been shot down in court
It'll be Iowa, Nevada, then NH, and SC. NH will have the first primary following the two caucuses.

I'm not including FL because I don't know when that will end up happening.

6. I'll find it mildly amusing if they go back to Feb 9.
Would there be enough eggs for Obama's, Edward's, and Biden's faces?

11. Does not matter . Why not just select our nominee with a 4 state participation.
The primaries are over with Nevada. The rest are irrelevant . The money race ends with Nevada and thats a wrap.

7. Not a chance
Gardner is waiting until the fiasco in Michigan is resolved, then he'll set NH's primary date.

9. NH will have the first Primary. You can bet on that.
Gardner is prepared to go in December to make sure of it.

10. In order to beat NH to the punch
Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 06:10 PM by cyclezealot
i am all for moving the first state primary one year before the actual presidential election. The reason the Jan 15 primary was struck down was how voter records are handled. Nothing to do with the Jan date. Latest word is Mich Dem's and Rep's will still hold caucus' or a state wide convention in Jan. to select National delegates. No argeement as of now, to go back to the Feb 9 date. They are holding firm as to the date.
