A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Monday, February 09, 2004 Food for thought: The logic behind the condensed and early primary season was to provide Democrats with a nominee early and head off any wacko (Deanlike) insurgency. The thought (apparently) was that having a nominee with nine months to go before the election would give the Democrat Party plenty of time to do fundraising and really rally behind their candidate.
But doesn't it also give the Republicans a lot of time to do opposition research and really tear down the Democrat nominee?
Kerry really hasn't been asked a whole lot of tough questions yet. You think Bush didn't do so hot on "Meet the Press" yesterday? Just wait until you see Russert armed with reams of GOP opposition research.
This early/condensed primary season may turn out to have been a bad idea for the Democrats.
