A Saturday Iowa Caucus for 2012?

It could happen. Though I think parties have great latitude in setting rules for primaries or caucuses (subject to potential congressional override), I think there's a reasonable chance a Saturday caucus (without the possibility of a proxy or absentee vote) could be successfully challenged on constitutional grounds by orthodox Jews and others whose religion would prevent them from voting in the caucuses.
