Democrats to select Bynum

Mike Bynum was the only person to put forth a desire to become the next Allen County chairman. Good luck to Mr Bynum as I'm sure he'll do a fine job.

The story about this particular process is interesting. While it is normal for nobody to contest the incumbancy of a popular chairman, it is atypical for an open seat to not be a contested race.

So why is there so little interest among Democrats in Indiana's second largest county to become their party chair?

The Meaning of Life ... Er Iowa

How do the Iowa results affect the local political landscape?

First off, the field of candidates in either party will be down to only two or three viable candidates.

Secondly, the Democratic party's primary should receive a boost in turnout. The Obama - Clinton fight should still be in full stride come May.

Finally, don't necessarily expect yesterday's leaders to be in front in May. Later in the month Michigan and Florida hold their primaries. The electoral importance of those two states should give us a good idea of how things will shake out.

Basically, a lot can happen between now and primary election day.
