Super Tuesday is past. Candidates trying to attract votes from Georgia to Massechussets to Alasaka, against geographical odds. And, we still have five-plus months until we get to the party conventions… This election season is still Way Too Long. I thought that I would cry-out in the wilderness again with this post, which I put our nearly four years ago.
As we come out from the presidential election cycle, I think that we are all as weary as the candidates. Two years have passed since the Republicans began sending up trial balloons and courting potential candidates, and Democrats began positioning for a re-election campaign. A year has passed since the first Republican debates gave us a long pre-primary candidate exposure, and the administration wrung its hands over the collapse of the Super Committee. The year began with various smaller states tripping over each other to hold their primary elections and caucuses before other states. Both Romney and Obama were actively giving campaign speeches, and SuperPAC were spewing toxic, negative adds, well before the party conventions. In my opinion our presidential campaign cycles have become way too long.
