Iowa Democrats Move to Jan. 3

Iowa Democrats are poised to move their primary to Jan 3, placing the contest on the same day Republicans have already chosen and one of the earliest caucus days in history.

The chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, Scott Brennan, will recommend this new date to top party officials on a conference call on Sunday and it is likely to be approved.

By setting this date, Iowa is ensuring its influence will remain in the presidential nomination process, as it at least for now has the earlier vote of any state, although New Hampshire officials are still considering hold a vote in December.

Bad news for any candidate relying on youth support. There won't be a single college student in their dorms that night.

WITH PRIDE AND DEDICATION I AND OTHERS WILL RE-DOUBLE OUR EFFORTS ON BEHALF OF
SENATOR BARACK OBAMA. EFFORT AND ORGANIZATION THOUGH CONSIDERED OLD-FASHIONED BY SOME PUNDITS REMAIN THE BEST
WAY TO WIN.
BY THE WAY HOW DO YOUR POLLS ACCOUNT FOR THE FACT THAT CAUCUS-GOERS WHO DO NOT HAVE LAND-LINE PHONES ARE NOT CONSIDERED AND YOU INSULT US ALL WHEN YOU THINK THAT WE WILL BE DISCOURAGED BY ANYTHING THAT YOU SAY OR WRITE.
WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT AND WILL PROVE IT.
