Susan Riegel Harding once taught elementary school pupils about the roots of American democracy. Now she's about to provide the entire state with a civics lesson. In the next few months, voters will be introduced to the blanket primary, in which Republicans can vote for Democrats and Democrats for Republicans--or anyone else--and independents can cast ballots in partisan primary contests. Friends describe the 56-year-old San Diego financial planner as the "godmother" of the new form of primary.
