  Can Clinton Save his Candidacy? - The World and I Magazine
This is a year of turmoil and terror in the Democratic Party: Their likely presidential nominee battered, bloodied, and ridiculed even before the general election has begun; angry, unforgiving voters appear ready to wreak punishment on the scandal-ridden Democratic-controlled Congress; and a fiery anti-incumbent mood may be sweeping the nation.
This is the astonishing situation that now faces the Democrats and Bill Clinton as he moves to lock up the nomination and convince a doubting nation that he is not the "slick Willie" portrayed by his political enemies, depicted by the new media, and lampooned by late-night comedians.
Indeed, many Democrats fear that their primaries are about to deliver to them "the worst of all worlds, a bleeding front-runner stumbling over the finish line" to receive the Democratic presidential nomination, said Sawyer.

 United States Elections 2004
The Democrats — in order to enhance the representation of minorities that may be concentrated in communities within the state — also require that 75 percent of a state's delegation be elected in districts that are no larger than a congressional district.
The Democrats also have other delegates — party leaders and elected officials — who are not under obligation to support particular candidates even though those candidates may have won primaries in their states.
The presidential nominating process is not perfect, but in recent decades it has enhanced participation, improved demographic representation, and strengthened the tie between the average partisan and the candidates.

The 1992 Democratic presidential primary chose the Democratic nominee for the general election.
The 1992 election was thought to be nearly unwinable by many Democrats.
Thus many of the most noted Democrats, such as Mario Cuomo and Dick Gephardt, stayed out of the election and the contestants became known as the "Seven Dwarfs" (a sarcastic reference to the Disney movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) as none was extremely well known.

 Western Presidential Primary
States have increasingly moved their primary or caucus dates earlier in the presidential primary calendar and states have banded together in coordinated regional primaries such as Super Tuesday (the South), Yankee or Junior Tuesday (New England), and Great Lakes Tuesday.
The West has had the least amount of impact historically on the presidential primary process because many of the states have smaller numbers of delegates at stake and that several of them have primary or caucus dates late in the process.
The Western Presidential Primary Task Force plans to organize televised candidate debates or town meetings that will be broadcast to all of the participating states to facilitate candidate exposure and interaction with western voters.

 DLC: The Real Soul of the Democratic Party by Al From and Bruce Reed
Democratic delegates were nearly five times more likely than Democratic rank-and-file to have incomes over $75,000, three times more likely to have a college degree, and over four times more likely to have done postgraduate work.
In the 2000 Democratic primary in Oklahoma, for example, 30 percent of voters were liberal, 45 percent moderate, and 25 percent conservative.
Democrats can take back the White House in 2004, but only if they live up to their party's true traditions, and stand up for the values, aspirations, and security of the decent, hard-working, God-fearing people that made this country and the Democratic Party great.

 The Green Papers Election 2000-2004 Glossary
This is the oldest type of presidential primary - one going back to the 1904 election, at which time Florida became the first state to authorize the use of a so-called "direct primary" election to choose the state's delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
In a Closed Primary or Caucus, only registered members of a party may vote in that party's primary: Democrats may only vote in the Democratic primary, Republicans may only vote in the Republican primary and Independents (those not registered with either major party) are not permitted to vote in either major party's primary.
In addition, a voter's party affiliation is unaffected by which primary he or she might have chosen to vote in: for example, a Democrat who chooses to vote in the Republican primary remains a registered Democrat and an Independent who votes in the Democratic primary remains a member of neither major party.

 Republican and Democratic conventions: the Illinois factors for Clinton and Bush   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Both 1992 national conventions are over, and to the surprise of many, they reflected a huge party flip-flop from 1988 and 1984.
By turning to gender, the Democrats also turned the thrust of their convention away from the poor to the middle class and from the inner city to suburban and small town America.
In 1992, unless a huge and unprecedented percentage of Chicagoans turn out, the Illinois presidential election for the first time could be dominated by the suburban vote.

 NPR : The 2004 Democratic Presidential Candidates: Carol Moseley Braun
It has become a tired cliche by now, but 1992 will long be remembered in the annals of political history as the "Year of the Woman." There were 11 female candidates for the Senate in the 1992 general election, by far the most ever, with four new women elected, also a record.
Her upset over a seemingly entrenched senator in the Democratic primary came just five months after Anita Hill testified against the nomination of Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court, an event that galvanized female voters around the country.
Considerably outspent, she lost her bid for re-election in 1998, the only Democratic incumbent to be ousted that year, and the first Illinois Democrat to lose a Senate race in 20 years.

With a lack of a primary on the GOP side, Lieberman may be able to successfully woo independents, duplicating McCain's feat of 2000 in which the Arizonan scored an upset victory.
One of the reasons he was picked as the vice presidential nominee in 2000 was his distaste, which he expressed in public, for President Clinton's personal behavior in office.

 Braun's dazzling win as downstate fails Dixon; Bush and Clinton pile up delegates   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
While factors aided this Democratic suburban surge (a publicized U.S. Senate race, high profile congressional contests, little Republican party action and no Jesse Jackson to turn out Chicago fls), the trend is clear and probably irreversible that Chicago's role in party matters is diminished.
Downstate was supposed to be Dixon's electoral hammer.
His only remaining challengers were Tsongas, a charming man who had a message more attuned to moderate Republicans than traditional Democratic primary voters, and Jerry Brown, whose conversion to a Frank Capra-style populism, had carved for him a small chunk of the Democratic electorate.

28).  There was a sharp increase in the number of state presidential primaries in the aftermath of 1968, but a national primary was not one of the reforms adopted, not surprisingly because "most members of the McGovern-Fraser Commission...favored a reformed convention rather than establishment of regional or national primaries" (Davis, 1980, pg.
742), in criticizing the current primary system as too long and too localized, says "urgent consideration does need to be given to such alternatives as regional primaries, or even a national primary, within a limited time span."  In considering the effect the primary would have on parties and candidates, Paul (1997, pg.

Tuesday showed the primary had already drawn more than the 114,000 voters who turned out in the state's 1992 Democratic presidential primary, Erwin said.
And even breaking the old Democratic primary record is a little misleading because the 1992 primary was held late in the season after Bill Clinton had effectively won the party's nomination.
Even so, Erwin said he is proud of how hard Democrats have worked to pull off the first-in-the-South primary despite constant questions about whether the party could pull it off.
