Good day/bad day: Winter break

If there's one thing most Americans agree on these days, it's their distaste for politicians. That sentiment will only grow when presidential candidates fill the airwaves over the winter holidays.

Iowa moved its first-in-the-nation caucuses up to Jan. 3. That leaves New Hampshire as the only early-voting state that hasn't set its date.

New Hampshire voters usually go to the polls about a week after the Iowa vote. This year, though, New Hampshire could set its primary for December. There's talk it could even be as early as Dec. 6 or Dec. 13, mere weeks from now. Either way, it'll be all-politickin'-all-the-time with your egg nog.
