With barely enough time to cure a hangover, the New Year will quickly usher in a break-neck political season, kicking off Tuesday, Jan. 3, with the Iowa caucus. A little more than two months later, Idaho will be a part of the so-called "Super Tuesday" on March 6, when primaries and caucuses will be held in Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and Wyoming.

Here's a quick look at the 2012 calendar in the race for the White House:

Jan. 3 - Iowa caucus
Jan. 10 - New Hampshire primary
Jan. 21 - South Carolina primary
Jan. 31 - Florida primary
Feb. 4 - Maine and Nevada caucuses
Feb. 7 - Colorado and Minnesota caucuses, Missouri primary
Feb. 28 - Arizona and Michigan primaries
March 3 - Washington caucus
March 6 - Super Tuesday
Aug. 27-30 - Republican National Convention
Sept. 3-6 - Democratic National Convention
Nov. 6 - Election Day

Currently, presidential debates are scheduled for Oct. 3, 16 and 22. One vice-presidential debate is slated for Oct. 11.
