Subject: RE: BS: Hillary is in the race for President
Iowa and New Hampshire being at the beginning and weilding so much influence is a huge issue here. It is fought over regularly and somehow the situation remains. As an Iowan I wouldn't mind seeing it change. The sh*t hits the fan here early, lasts way too long, and then we become irrelevant again.

The thing I do think is good is that our population is fairly small and we are a caucus state. The candidates actually have to get out and talk to people rather than just flooding the airwaves. If you don't see a candidate in person here then you aren't trying. You can't swing a deat cat without hitting one.

I don't know how much of that is population and how much is because we caucus rather than have a regular primary. Maybe it is just because we are the only show in town for a while. No matter, it seems like being first should rotate a bit.
