    Pehaps...but alot of Americans that would like to join the Chorus and sing along won't be afforded the oppritunity.

    The battle between Obama and the Hildebeast went into June 2008...

    I think primaries need to all be completed within a much smaller time frame. This drawn out process is damaging to the candidates and people have grown tired of it.

    It indicates they’re all ‘establishment republicans,’ partisanism will always trump ideology, and the TPM a political contrivance.

    Ryan (R-WI) endorses Romney before Primary And I'm glad he did it that way, because this will give at least a degree of feedback to him from his own state, and to all of us.

    Granted. So the States have some work to do, eh?

    But then some have to come to realize that haste brings waste.

    Some might say this process has innoculated our candidates from future pain. Then some say this process has given Obama tons of ammo for his campaign.

    It's damaging to these candidates. The '08 Dem primaries went on months longer and weren't damaging to Obama or Clinton. In fact, they both raised more money than this cycle's Republicans, both had much better favorability ratings (both Obama and Hillary had net positive favorabilities, with Obama at more than +20; by comparison, all the Republicans this cycle are underwater); and the Dem primary electorate in '08 indicated much more satisfaction with and excitement about the primary choice before them.

    So yeah, a long primary is damaging if all the candidates are terrible. If they're all strong, it's certainly a good thing.
