John Deeth Blog: The Caucuses' greatest hits: Revisited with new material

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Album releases, like elections, happen on Tuesdays. And greatest hits
sets always come out in the holiday season. Today, for example, we get
the 43rd different version of a Rod Stewart compilation, for people
who can't figure out free downloading. With that in mind I dug into
the vaults. Two years ago, I wrote a history of the Iowa caucuses
where I ranked the contests in order of significance. I've updated
this classic collection, just like they always added a new song to the
greatest hits album to make you buy the same songs over again. My two
new tracks: an all-time classic and a cover version of a 1996
mid-chart hit. Original text begins here with no changes except a
couple strikethroughs and re-numbering. The 2008 sections are added
where they belong. For now.
