Irony ....

My former Political Science prof keeps a blog (along with others) about election news and research. I read this on there and wanted to share.

The Irony of the 2008 Democratic Primaries
One short thought: In 2006 and 2007, numerous states moved primaries up to Super Tuesday and earlier so that they could be more "relevant". Isn't it ironic that it is the states that did not move -- North Carolina, Indiana, Oregon -- who are basking in unprecedented attention by the candidates? Those states that did move often received little more than a wave from the candidates; if they had not moved, they could be being romanced right now.
