Unilateral Disarmament

California is moving its presidential primary back to June, after having it in March in 1996, 2000, and 2004. Even Michigan's February 7 caucus seemed mostly irrelevant, what with the media, the party machinery, and Iowa and New Hampshire having already decided that Kerry was the most "electable." (Boy, were they wrong!) And the Repugs didn't even bother to run a challenger against the worst president in history. The state with the largest population was already irrelevant by March. Now they want to guarantee irrelevance--just let Iowa and New Hampshire decide who the most powerful person in the world is going to be.

Apparently the bill had bipartisan support, just further evidence that both major parties have no real interest in either republican or democratic forms of government.
