(inspired by Open Left:: For Folksy Primaries)
I've felt for some time that the order of primaries should be based on the degree to which the states were divided in the last Presidential election. That means that the state with the closest margin of victory should hold the first primary next time around, the next closes margin of victory would be second, and so on... Which means, of course, that Ohio would be #1 this time. Imagine the kind of primary season THAT would be!
