Radical Primary Schedule Suggestions

The current primary scheduling practice is aimed at empowering theoretical swing states to ensure a moderate nominee with wide electoral appeal.   That’s great and all, but if we really thought the Blue Dog states should choose the president, then why not just run a Zel Miller/Lieberman ticket and be done with it?

It’s the Democratic primary, so let’s reward states that consistently go Democratic in the general election, and let the base choose the nominee.  Of course, this would mean that the first state would be….Minnesota!  If those DFL commies played the role of New Hampshire, the whole party would shift left.  The nominee would be more beholden to Democrats for support, as opposed to their own charismatic appeal to fickle Floridians, and DINOism woudl decrease.  What’s not to like?
