2008 New Jersey Presidential Primary

Well, New Jersey has voted to move up with the pack and have their Presidential Primary on February 5, 2008. According to Wikipedia, there are 22 states that are either holding or considering to hold their primary on the same date. And Florida and Michigan are seeking to move up from there! So I'm not too sure what New Jersey is trying to accomplish by lumping itself with the pack.

Despite this, there are two people that will actually benefit from this move - Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Rudy Giuliani. They are New York-based candidates that emjoy a strong following in New Jersey (one of which has the Governor's endorsement), and knowing New Jersey is in their pocket while other states may be a bit more competitive means having to spend less money here to secure the vote.

Here's the sketch:

This morning in the PRess, there is a tax cartoon that you did that was great. When's the Obama cartoon appearing?

Nice Obama, with his shit-kickin' grin. If only Hillary smiled that much, maybe people would like her.
