    In Which NTodd Says His Peace

And Then There Were Three

As I'm sure you all know by now, Clark's dropping out. Damn.

I wish he could've stayed in until Super Tuesday, or Wisconsin at least. I know it's probably throwing good money after bad, and he might not have any money to throw, but I don't like the idea of any candidate running away with this thing without giving people a chance to really consider their choices. I really dislike this compressed schedule.

The bandwagon effect is dangerous, and all the rapid fire voting just makes it worse. Either create a national primary, or stretch out the contests. The current approach seems to be the worst of both worlds: it amplifies the money advantage and the king-making influence of two very small, unrepresentative states. That strikes me as being undemocratic (but maybe not un-Democratic).

Interesting spin Kerry is putting on yesterday's results:

Once again, the message rings out loud and clear: Americans are voting for change East and West, North and now in the South.

I don't think that's the message people are sending. Memo to Dean and Edwards: please stick around for a while. Looks like Edwards plans on it:

The voters who voted today in the election are saying to the country that we're going to have a campaign and an election, not a coronation.
