Someone get Howard an aspirin

Pennsylvania or no Pennsylvania, Howard Dean has had about enough of the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination. According to CNN:

An increasingly firm Howard Dean told CNN again Thursday that he needs superdelegates to say who they’re for – and “I need them to say who they’re for starting now.”

“We cannot give up two or three months of active campaigning and healing time,” the Democratic National Committee Chairman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “We’ve got to know who our nominee is.”
So, Michigan and Florida are in the corner for having their primaries too early ... Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Oregon, Montana and South Dakota apparently have theirs scheduled too late ... the majority of the contests fell in between and found themselves well timed by luck alone. So, here's my question: For scheduling purposes, when is the time for a presidential primary "just right?"

Watch out, Howard. We might start calling you Goldilocks.
