Front-Loading the Primaries

Hosted by

In bids for more influence in next year's presidential elections, big states and little states are moving their primaries forward. New Hampshire's may be held in December of this year. The nominations could be decided exactly a week from today. Would that put an end to what's left of real political discourse?  Would it finally reduce all presidential politics to TV commercials? Plus, President Bush presents his budget for 2008 and, on Reporter's Notebook, murders, assaults, imprisonments and legal harassment of journalists all over the world.
