This is getting a little silly. Michigan could vote today to move its primary vote up to January 15th. That would probably push New Hampshire and then Iowa (maybe even South Carolina, Florida, etc, etc) to move their primaries earlier still. Let's see, this is August 22nd, what are your plans for next Tuesday... Primary anyone? In all seriousness, there could be a Christmas primary this year. We'll also talk with Congresswoman Deborah Pryce, from Ohio, on the show today. She's one of three long-time midwest Republicans not running again.. the others being Dennis Hastert, the former Speaker of the House, and Ray LaHood, both of Illinois.
