Silver lining to a long primary season
Is the long primary going to tear the Democratic Party apart? I really don't think so; the Dems will be united against McCain, even if some Independents are up for grabs, and nobody is going to sit this one out. On the other hand, it's something to see the Democrats in Wyoming (all 16,000 of them!) and Mississippi actually getting excited about a presidential nomination for the first time in more than a generation. If the key to change is personal involvement of individuals in the political system, this is essential.
