Time's running out
MSNBC's Demo Derby makes a valuable point: while there may be three months to go before the Iowa Caucuses, the opportunities available for Dean's opponents to catch up to him are dwindling at a much faster rate. Why? Because we are entering the holiday season and people are going to focus more attention on what presents to buy for the kids than who they want to be the next President.
This installment of Demo Derby takes urgent note of the calendar: Halloween is here, Thanksgiving is upon us in a few weeks, then we have the Christmas holiday season, so voters’ minds will be distracted for some time. What’s more important on Dec. 20, Howard Dean’s stand on Medicare or that gift you still haven’t bought for your spouse? The Iowa caucuses take place a little over three weeks after Christmas.
