Krusty Konservative: Iowa Caucus: Jan Five?

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

In yesterday's Des Moines Register, David Yepsen weighs in on when he
thinks Iowans should caucus; Saturday afternoon January 5th. It's a
good idea and one that I think IDP and RPI should act on. Now I think
the ideal date for the caucus is Monday, January 14th, but with states
moving up to kompact the entire nominating process into one month, I
think January 5th is the best we can hope for. January 5th allows
kandidates 11 days to kampaign between Christmas and the caucuses. The
5th also allows enough space for New Hampshire squeeze in during the
week of the 7th. It will be interesting to see how long it will take
the folks at the IDP and RPI to kome to an agreement. Uncertainty is
not an ally to the Iowa caucuses, if we are going to caucus on a
different day and a different time, we need to know sooner rather than
later so people know what's going on.
