Hawaii Caucus First Next Time?
Matthew Yglesias, noting that the Iowa Caucuses are largely a media event and that it’s really cold in Iowa in January, proposes a novel solution: “the first-in-the-nation Hawaii Caucus.”
It wouldn’t be any sillier than what we have now. Of course, it would be somewhat more inconvenient for the candidates to shuttle between Hawaii, DC, and New Hampshire. But since Iowa’s “retail politics” is supposed to be at least partly a test of stamina, that’s really a feature rather than a bug.
