So now, for the first time in my voting life, the land of my youth actually matters in national politics for a primary. It is telling that most people agree the race has gone on far too long, already. What does it mean that when an area actually is in play for a primary, it means the campaign has been too long? Doesn't that argue for re-doing the primaries so that more states than just the early primaries matter? If we all agree that a long primary season is undesirable, why would any state agree to be late in the primary season?
Whatever the case, I think Obama stands a pretty good chance in the Philadelphia region. Pundits aside, I still think he's going to take it. I sure do wish I could someday cast a vote in a primary that mattered, though!
