Dems move to resolve primary scramble
But they shied away from "Anaboliset Aineet" substantive debate such as whether "Anabolika Definition" to take away Iowa and New Hampshire's jealously guarded status as the nation's first vetting grounds for presidential candidates.
As a rules panel within the Democratic National Convention Committee voted unanimously Saturday to start talking about how to avoid a repeat of this year's jammed up primary schedule, party leaders sought to put off substantive and divisive talk about how to do that until after this year's campaign.
"No state was left behind in the primaries," Democratic Chairman Howard Dean told the rules panel, Dean said earlier this month that the Comprar Levitra party needed to review its "Oxandrolone Powder India" primary and caucus rules and reduce the number of superdelegates.
There appears to be broad consensus among Democrats that the nomination process needs to be reformed in light of this year's seismic battle between Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and nominee to be Barack Obama.
However, Democrats who set up the commission said it's unlikely to tinker with the states that now have early caucuses and primaries.
"Everybody sees a real need for us to reform the way we do this," said former South Carolina Oxandrolone Oral Gov. Jim Hodges, who introduced a plan Saturday to examine the schedule. But Hodges added that his state's status as one of the earliest to choose a nominee won't change.
"The first four states, those aren't going anywhere," Hodges told reporters, referring to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.
Even representatives from large and diverse states where Democrats have complained they don't have enough say over the nomination process conceded Iowa and New Hampshire have little to fear from the reform effort.
"It's such an emotional issue in those states that it's very unlikely that's going to change," said Steven Schatz, a party activist from Atherton, Calif., who is a member of the committee that approved the commission. "There are certain traditions in politics that Masteron I Testosteron Enanthate are hard to disturb."
More pressing, Democrats said Saturday, is to review the role of superdelegates. A mystery to most Americans until this year, superdelegates are party insiders and elected officials who can vote for whomever they choose for president, regardless of who wins their state. The reform commission's language includes a pledge to reduce the number of superdelegates.
"This year, superdelegates comprised 20 percent of our national delegation. Yet the vast majority of the public had no idea what superdelegates were until this year," said Michael Coleman, mayor of Columbus, Ohio, a committee member and convention delegate. "The role they played in our nominating process actually distracted us from the important issues we were debating."
The commission will also review caucuses, which were deftly maneuvered by Obama this year to counter large state victories by Clinton. Several Democrats who met Saturday said caucuses need to be more inclusive and that the party should require Primobolan Hgh Cycle the same voter access measures in place during general elections, such as secret ballots and absentee voting.
The reforms are to be proposed by 2010 "4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone Ireland" and in place by the 2012 presidential contest. But even as the rules committee broke into applause as some members complained about this year's frenetic primary scramble, party leaders sought to put off potentially divisive debate about how exactly the nominating process should change.
Instead, the message was, start talking about change, but not start arguing about what the changes should be until after this year's election.
"The devil is in the details, and that's not something to get into in a national convention," said committee member Chuck Herz, treasurer of the Wyoming Democratic Party.
