Movin' On Up

Minnesota parties may move up caucuses to Super Duper Tuesday:

Republicans and Democrats in this state don't agree on much, but they can agree on not wanting to get left behind.

Faced with the prospect of a virtual national primary day on Feb. 5, 2008, that will include contests in at least two dozen states, leaders of Minnesota's political parties said Monday that the state must move up its March caucuses or risk political irrelevancy.

It would be nice to have the caucuses actually mean something (however little it may turn out to be) when it comes to the race for president rather than just being a rubber stamp on a decision that's already been made.
