Bleeding Heartland: When Will We Caucus?

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

The smart money is on January 3rd. David Yepsen covered most of the
bases in his column yesterday, but here are a couple more reasons… If
New Hampshire is on the 8th, then legally we can go no earlier than
the 31st of December. Fat chance. Since December is basically out of
the picture barring further excitement, the only possible dates are
the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th, and the earlier the better. The
2nd will be ruled out as too close to New Year's Day, although really
anyone who hasn't slept off their hangover from drinking 43 hours
before is probably not a likely caucus attendee anyway. The 3rd seems
like the sweet spot between giving people at least a little time to
think about politics again and giving the winners a measurable bump in
New Hampshire.
