This primary season annoyed me. It annoyed me mainly because the ads started last summer and the campaigns of the last two contenders have been going on for over 18 months already. The silly season starts sooner and sooner and with states abilities to set their own dates they all push up the calendar in order to be more important. I personally don't think this helps anyone except a few media conglomerates who make a lot of money on advertising.
With that in mind I wanted to look at the 2012 schedule with a few assumptions about what will happen, not to really judge whether this is good or bad (I think it is bad to have it start so early) but to let everyone see what is the VERY likely outcome of the FL/MI kafuffle.
