Channelling Topol

Mr. Pterodactyl raises an interesting point:

Iowa is first because in 1972 the state conventions set rules that caused their primary to be held on January 24th, which just happened to be earlier than everybody else's. The only reason, now, for Iowa to be first is 'tradition,' but that tradition is only 35 years old.
1972? Wouldn't that make my birthday an even stronger and more traditional tradition?
