Changes in the works for the 2008 Democratic primaries?

DNC chair Howard Dean says a study is underway about the nominating process. The study comes amid growing criticism that Iowa and New Hampshire have too much influence in the process.

Many Dems were ticked last year when John Kerry locked up the nomination pretty quickly after Iowa. While he ran into some stiff competition from John Edwards here in Wisconsin, it wasn't enough to stop him.

It seems to me that at some point something has to give since every election cycle, more states move their primaries up to give themselves more of a say in the process.
