The American Electorate -- No Rest For The Weary

     Is there anyone in these United States of America who hasn't had enough politics for a while?

I think not.  There is a nationwide need for time off from talk by pundits and politicians; time off from thoughts of  policies, proposals, and positions.

So how much time off do we have between the election cycle just ended, and the start of the next?

All of five days.

Less than a week after election day 2012, the first move by a probable 2016 presidential candidate will be made in Iowa--always the state with the first event of the primary season,

 Florida's junior U.S. Senator, Marco Rubio, will speak there during what will be only the first of  many visits to the Hawkeye state over the next four years.

Expect New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, to soon make it a trio of Republican presidential hopefuls piling up frequent flyer miles in and out of Iowa.

It will be interesting to see how soon Democratic presidential possibilities Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton find reason--in actuality an excuse--to make the same trip.  And most likely there will be any number of "new" Democratic and Republican presidential wannabes testing the waters and perhaps expanding the field. 

The race for The White House--the 2016 edition--begins Monday.  Enjoy  the time off.
