Schwarzenegger just signed into law a bill moving the California Presidential primary up to Feb. 5. With several other States slated to do the same. Feb. 5 is turning out to be the big showdown in the Presidential primary calender.
This means two things. First, California really is going to matter in this process. So I expect the ass-kissing to get underway soon.
Second, this contest is going to be over quickly. A few early states and then bam, Feb. 5 and its over.
