Yucca is so yesterday.
So are other localized issues once indulged in the presidential campaign. Ethanol has gone up in (politically correct) smoke. Billions for Detroit? A distant echo.
The presidential candidates, who have seemed to be running for mayor at times, now must run for the presidency.
They face what is essentially a national election in a week, two dozen contests coast to coast, and can no longer get by with the single-state pandering that helped get them where they are. Don’t expect to be hearing more about Iowa hog waste from the men and woman who would be president.
