Democrats Muttering About New Hampshire
It's not often I agree with Tom Oliphant
.The latest looming mess regarding the next nominating season is the appointment of a commission to recommend ways of increasing geographic and ethnic diversity in the early voting events that since 1976 have been built around the precinct caucuses in Iowa and the primary in New Hampshire.
There are a couple of factors coming into play. One is the Democrats' obsession with "fairness" (is it really fair that New Hampshire has the first primary every presidential election year?) and the second is "diversity" which holds that the Granite State is far too white and non-Hispanic. The third, of course, is that Democrats think that New Hampshire must be the reason why they keep losing presidential elections.
One would think that the fact that John Kerry won almost every primary he entered in 2004 would convince them of the foolishness of this notion, but never underestimate the Democrats' ability to deceive themselves.
