January 29th Democratic Primary to be Non-Binding
This was always the best that was going to happen once Tallahassess decided to participate in the great front loaded car crash that is our primary season.
If they had decided to make the primary just one week later - February 5th instead of January 29th - Florida would now be second only to Iowa in importance.
Instead, we are another joke for late night comedy.
I suppose I should stop hoping that our state government will stop mucking things up every election, but it's getting frustrating, watching us constantly embarrass ourselves through the stupid, little games our legislature plays.
This is not to say that the primary will be meaningless, but only that we squandered a chance to play a part in picking our next president by doing things right, rather than by screwing up again.
On the Republican side, it appears that the state GOP is happy with losing half our delegates (wonder what that does to Giuliani's firewall?).
