The permanent campaign

Presidential Leapfrog - The nominating process gets curiouser and curiouser.


Sixty years ago, Presidential nominees were chosen largely by delegates to conventions held in late summer, between 60 to 90 days before the actual vote. That system gave us FDR, Truman and Ike, to name three better than average Presidents. It also gave us Warren Harding--but then no system is perfect.

Comment: I favor regional primaries that rotate voting. Earlier post: Uncluttering the primary calendar
