New York has just made February 5, 2008 the biggest day ever in Presidential politics history, other than the day of the general election, of course. Joining California, the New York Legislature overwhelmingly approved to move the state primary up from March 4 to February 5. This will undoubtedly help the cause of both candidates Sen. Clinton and former Mayor Giuliani. The measure was approved 59-1 in the GOP controlled Senate, and 123-4 in the Democratic controlled Assembly.
New York and California may make the other primaries irrelevent, as a candidate may likely put a headlock on the party’s bid, and never be in danger of relinquishing the lead.
