Is it not time to let states other than NH, Iowa and S.C. be primary determiners of who runs for president?

 

Yes. Arkansas and the Virgin Islands.

FYI:  Don Fowler (cited in the above) is an 82 year old from South Carolina and has spent his entire life in the Democratic Party, particularly in S.C.,  in one position or another.  He has never held elective office as far as I can tell.  He also operates a "communications" business in SC.

S.C. has the First in the South primaries, close behind NH and Iowa.  An early CA primary would significantly lower the importance of the S.C. primary, for both parties.

 

Every state wants to have more impact on who the presidential candidates are.  CA is no different.  It is not an attempt to prevent any faction of the Dem. party from winning.  While it may advance some CA candidates, every state wants to do that - in both parties.

You think S.C. GOPers, are not wishing and hoping they can get Nikki Haley on a national ticket?  Probably for president.

 

Is it not time to let states other than NH, Iowa and S.C. be primary determiners of who runs for president?

"Illinois Democratic state Sen. Daniel Biss is running an uphill race for his party’s gubernatorial nomination. He faces a $21 million problem — that’s the amount Hyatt Hotel heir J.B. Pritzker, also vying for the Democratic nomination, has put into his own campaign.

 

But Biss is countering his capitalist opponent by picking as his running mate someone who is Pritzker’s direct opposite: a democratic socialist.......

On the New York mayors race Sal Albanese said.... If Mickey Mouse was the mayor, we’d still have crime going down.

That's comforting for the victims of crime to know. :blink:

There's little doubt that Clinton would have appointed

Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

There always comes a time in any adult's life where they have to put aside their own little petty or personal likes and dislikes and act in a mature way
That is for the betterment of all.

It may be a short-term sacrifice, in order to survive to get to the long run.

That reminds me of when I was selling  p-o-t  "a long time ago", and I had a couple of pounds of mediocre grass, and I thought people should buy it, they should ignore their likes or dislikes. Fortunately I came to my senses and trashed that junk.

I take it that you would like to see the Democratic party fail the way you choose to post only negative things about them. Is Trump your answer?

How the Sanders element is helping the Republicans to stay in power in 2018.

 

Like it matters.

 

The Progressive (Sanders) Party will either take over the government or the government will remain virtually Republican. There's no difference in governance whether it's Republicans or Republicrats in office.

A new Democratic group has been founded to push a more centrist approach for the party.  It is called New Democracy.

 

Just what the people wanna see - more Republicrats.

 

Not.

What an amazingly pertinent ploy!

 

Come on, Bernie - threaten to move to a new Party and force the Democrats to get on board or face death.
