    According to Game Change it wasn’t only Reid. A bunch of congressional members and big party donors were urging him to run against Clinton. They saw in 2008 what exactly played out in 2016.

    Or may be making the nomination appears more legitimate before the DNC decide on who to nominate before the 2020 Primaries? :rolleyes:

    Very big move. I honestly think the system is messed up and that's why more and more states keep moving theirs earlier. It makes little sense Iowa and NH have such sway in who our candidates are. I've heard it allows
    for any candidate to run a smaller scale campaign but the cons outweighs the pros imo. I rather there be 3-4 events like Super Tuesday that covers the primary cycle.

    The primaries are not a Federal things. They are State/Party things. Several States have changed dates fairly recently. Florida for example.

    Yeah, that was a pretty ignorant comment (in that if he were aware of the history, he would have realized that his theory was stupid).

    Ill say its actually draining the swamp, and not just using catchy slogans with no meaning.

    Moving the primary up will help increase the chances that the political elites will get the front runner establishment figure to be in total control very early. That person could be Hillary Clinton. Even with all the hoopla about not having a level playing field in 2016 Democratic primaries, the Hillary machine manically marches onward.

    All the extra time allowed Hillary and the DNC to rig California last time. The Bernie Bros are fucking pissed.

    Does this have anything to do with the change? I don't know, but tons of CA people are angry that their votes got trashed and Hillary ran over the voters.

    As a Hillary hater I am almost glad she cheated in CA to win the nom. It meant that Bernie couldn't be Trump.

    Peace.

    I still feel that all this will do is ensure the candidate with the largest warchest at the start of the primaries wins the nomination.

    It will cost a lot of money to win such a large state (geographic and population wise).

    The winning candidate will be determined so early in the primaries that the voters won't get a chance to "know" the other candidates.

    There will be no outsiders winning the nomination in 2020.

    Can we please have a political/business/entertainment vBookie betting subforum before the next election?

    I'd like to lock down Kamala Harris' nomination while the odds are still good :cool:

    I'd like it too but I don't have any sway with what those guys do there. They probably would just give us a look and tell us to go back where we came.

    Great move. The GOAT state needs a greater say in who's going to get nominated not shit states like Alabama, Arkansas, etc

    The nation is always begging to follow our lead, so here we give these peasants what they clamor for. In the end it won't make a lick of difference, but don't expect the inbreds from third world states to comprehend that.

    Said it before and I'll say it again. I'm going to keep saying it. Kamela Harris Democratic nominee 2020. She's a female, she's African-American and she wants free healthcare. It's like a liberals wet dream.
