It is to bad that it will be re-done. If the dems had some spine, I would hope that they tell the national party "sorry, but you can continue to be screwed without our delagates".


To bad that will never happen.

In the end, Hillary and Moley Moley will get whatever they want, the votes will count and all of Michigan's delegates will be seated in her favor helping her win the nomination. It was a spineless plot from the very beginning to swing Michigan to Hillary with no fight. Now when she wins, she will take our Moley bitch with her. I'm torn. No more moley bitch + Hilterly, or do we keep her...

Bye, bye Moley Moley, I'm torn, but at least the Mole will be removed

The irony is that if Michigan would have kept the original primary schedule it would have gotten lots of attention, at least from the Democrats.

The other funny thing is that the are campaining for the votes to count because present polls show McCain will beat hillary, but Obama will beat McCain. So they are trying to help hillary win.

The arguments that voters will be disenfranchised/angered, and somehow not vote in november is utterly stupid.

This is classic.

The were so sure that Hillary was a lock that they rolled the dice that MI and FL wouldn't be needed. Howard Dean, master strategist strikes again...

For the record, I don't see the rationale for moving the primary, except to inflate the perceived self-worth of the MI party leadership.

That said, the DNC has to "dance while the band's playing" and accept the MI (or any other state's) primary whenever that state holds it. They gambled with disenfranchising voters, and lost. That doesn't make it the state's responsibility to correct their mistake.

If the DNC wants another MI (and FL) primary, then they pay for it. Every cent - ZERO cost to the state's taxpayers. Both states held primaries and they chose not to accept them.

If they have one, I encourage all / conservatives to vote Obama.
