Michigan stepped one step closer today to a January 15, 2008 primary (or caucus) date. All of this even though the DNC sanctioned Florida for moving their primary up. It looks like the DNC is going to have a hard time controlling state democrats on this issue (I love the lack of discipline).

Why do you love the lack of discipline?

I think it is out of control.

I think the best plan would be to have dates which the primaries must be held between.

Have a sliding date scale starting with the states with the fewest electoral college members and work your way up.

This would have to be set up by the Federal Republicans and Democrats. Are there constitutional issues here? My guess is no if the Democrates can ignore Florida's delegates.

I think your sliding date scale idea is sort of interesting. It would obviously benefit the smaller states. It may tend to produce candidates who would be slightly tilted toward small state interests but a lot of people think the current system pretty much does the same thing.

If it created more of a bent, that would mean candidates who are outside of the mainstream may be favored. It would be the reverse of a system that was a "national primary" and that resulted in candidates more aligned with a big city perspective and at odds with the folks in the rural parts.

I like the lack of discipline simply because it is amusing to me that the national party told the state no and they rebelled.

I also like the lack of discipline because it seems to me that perhaps the efforts of the national party to control the nomination process should be rebuffed, otherwise, they may be too influential on the process.

Past experience has shown that states don't necessarily get much bang for their buck by moving up early. States have moved up and then back. There seems to be limits to the value of moving up earlier.
