14. Nobody is right, if everybody is wrong.
Please forgive me for kind of stealing a great lyric out of the 60s. My motive here is to say I think we are all broken-hearted about this primary thing in an election year as important as there ever has been in American history. I am proud of my home. I lived in 3 other states, yet came back. I even said nice things about, you know, that school in A2. :)

Look, the MDP meant well, but the leadership seems to be falling short; as they seem to be on other issues I will not go into, because you all know my views on that topic. The point here is that the ends do not justify the means. Yes, I want my beloved place of birth to be a bigger player in this process, but I think this whole NASCAR-style race to primary supremacy is pretty damn stupid.

Again, a national primary is the way to go. It negates the FAUX snoozed coverage that that an overly consolidated media force feeds us daily. It forces the combatants to compete in every state from day one. And yes, if you cant find an ear in Iowa, I am sure some voters in the Midwest might send you some money.Mr. Dodd, are you listening?

OK, so the national thing doesnt float your boat. I heard Ed Schultz interview Sam Donaldson today. Ole Sammy talked about this idea of floating 4 regional primaries. I am down with that too. No one feels slighted.

OK Doggie, time for bed.
