Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.  Three states with a grand total of 8,893,673 Americans (2000 census) are the ones who get to see our candidates for President first and the most.

Why is that?

If a good candidate does well in one of these states, most likely, he will go on to be either the Democratic or Republican candidate for President.

Does that seem fair?  Does it seem right?

A candidate that is seen as dissing one of these three states will be punished there.

What is up with that?

Why are we letting less than 9 million of our fellow citizens determine the most important job in this country?

I don’t understand the purpose of a candidate throwing his or her hat into the political ring by kissing up to Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Anyone else feel this way?

God Bless
