Michigan and Florida

Posted in Election 2008 by Ryan on the March 12th, 2008

This is a great article by Roland Martin at on the Michigan and Florida “issue.”

But the DNC should protect the integrity of its rules process. If it acquiesces, how many states will pull the same trick in four years? The precedent would have been set, and anyone else could make the same argument: Please, please, give us another chance, even though we brought this on ourselves.

No. Enough. Let’s end this madness and tell Florida and Michigan that they had their shot. They blew it. It’s time to move on and let the people who know how to play by the rules get on with this process. They made their bed. Now sleep in it.

I have personally phrased it as follows, “Michigan and Florida played chicken with the DNC and lost.  End of story.”
