We will likely know who the party nominees for President will be in early 2008. Many states have moved up the dates of their primaries and caucuses in an attempt to have more influence.
As a result, states that traditionally hold early elections have moved their voting to even earlier. Iowa will hold its caucuses on January 3rd.
This election also sees what's being dubbed "super duper Tuesday." More than 20 states, including New York and California, will hold elections on February 5th. With so many delegates being picked on this day or before, most analysts expect the race to be over on this day, if not before.
This is the first election since 1928 when neither a sitting President or Vice President is running for President.
