Radio Iowa: It's (not quite) a date

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

The Republican Party of Iowa's State Central Committee will meet
tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6 p.m. via telephone to vote on whether the
party's precinct Caucuses (those Iowa Caucuses) should be held on
Thursday, January 3, 2008. It appears likely the GOPers will vote in
favor of that move. The question is what will Iowa Democrats do and
they're not giving many public signals. It is "tradition" for
Republicans and Democrats in Iowa to hold their precinct Caucus
meetings on the same date, but not a requirement. The reason many
Republicans argue for the Thursday date is because the results of the
Caucuses would have more of an impact than if they were held on the
Saturday before the Tuesday New Hampshire Primary.
