Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent
Former Iowa Democratic Party communications director Carrie Giddins, who for more than a year dealt with the hordes of national and international media in Iowa for caucuses coverage, had a front-row seat for the calendar wars with Florida and Michigan.

Giddins, who is now a Washington, D.C.-based communications consultant, concludes: "Florida and Michigan must face the consequences of their decisions."
