The Trifecta: The Primary Dance Continues

The primary calendar dance continues to go around-and-around.

Last night in an interview with Roger Simon, Bill Gardner admitted that a December primary date "is a possibility." Also, last night the Iowa Republicans voted to hold their caucus on January 3rd. The Dems are expected to pick either the 3rd or the 5th. Adding to this uncertainty is that the South Carolina Democrats will ask the DNC permission to host the primary on January 26th. In case you were wondering, the Republicans will be competing in the Palmetto state on January 19th.

What does this all mean? It means we really don't know anything, until Gardner picks a date.
