McAuliffe's Legacy

DNC Top Talking Head McAuliffe changed the dem primaries to select their candidate early. He didn't want the shortened period they had before to get their message out.

Right thought, wrong time.

Running against an incumbent is different than selecting a president from two wannabes. An incumbent is naturally stronger - so one has to ambush him or her. When two folks are running for what is otherwise a vacant office, a long time to let the candidates fight it out like a championship boxing match is appropriate.

So now Kerry is twisting in the wind. And he knows he has eight months to take arrows. Now he wants W to act like an unknown and debate him every month. Kerry must have cotton mouth as he demands such things.

McAuliffe lost the election for his party before the first caucus vote was cast.
