Politics of Instant Gratification
The Politico‘s Roger Simon laments the push toward early primaries: “The presidential nominating process used to have a beginning, middle and end. In 2008, it will have only a beginning. And then it will probably end.”
I disagree with his lament, as I have noted many times in past posts, and think the analysis that follows in the rest of his column is wrong. Still, that’s a really good lede.
