I see the same humor, and find it ironic that once again, it's the democratic party requesting it...

Seeing that the people of Mich and Fla basically got their right to vote tossed like an incarcerated virgin ass, I'd like to see their primaries done again as well. Either that, or give Hilldizzle her delagates she rightfully won.

I don't think Obama even had his name on the ballot in Michigan, so holding another primary would seem to be the best option.

The problem is that even though the Dems didn't recognise the delegate count, only Hillary put her name on there to give the people a chance to voice their opinion. Obama, Richardson, Edwards, etc. are all a bunch of shitheads who obviously don't care about you if you don't hold a delegate status.

This is going to seal the deal for McCain. Democratic voters are spiteful enuff that whoever loses in the primaries will go vote for McCain.


This move is going to tear apart the DNC.

I'm gonna try to look at this objectively....

For one, Michigan and Florida have themselves to blame for this fiasco. They agreed to the primary voting rules a long time ago. They violated the rules that they had agreed too and it bit them in the ass. Hillary was the only candidate that did any serious campaigning in Florida.

Ok, now fuck objectivity...

Howard Dean told Florida and Michigan that they have two choices. Appeal their case to a Democrat commitee at the convention and try to get their delegates seated and their votes counted (that ain't gonna happen) or re hold elections by June. That is unlikely but still possible. IMO if it does happen, Hillary will sweep both states simply because she can correctly state that she was the only candidate that didn't ignore them. Obama definitely doesn't want them to re-hold elections.

Looking at the last results. Here is what happened.

Florida
Hillary - 49.77% - 105 delegates
Obama - 32.93% - 67 delegates
Edwards - 14.38% - 13 delegates

Michigan
Hillary - 55.23% - 73 delegates
Obama - 0.0% - not on the ballot.
UNCOMMITTED - 40% - 55 delegates..

Assuming Obama got all of that Uncommittted vote, Hillary still wouldn't beat him on the delegate count. However she would really start closing that gap. Right now Obama has an 89 delegate lead. Assuming these results were duplicated that lead would be cut to 33. Throw in the rest of the Primary elections and now Hillary has a real possibility to take the delegate lead. Without those two states, she can't do that....

Oh what interesting times we live in...

IMO Republican Governor Crist would be really really smart to offer to hold new elections for the Florida Democrats. It would give them a real chance to bitch slap the DNC and Howard Dean, which is something they want to do....

The DNC is a clusterfuck. The caucus bullshit here, was a clusterfuck. Hillary is going to weasel her way into representing the Dems, period. She is FAR dirtier than Obama could ever hope to be, and once again, the DNC, poverty pimps that they are, will throw their black members under the bus. It's a shame that black folks think that the Dems give a shit about them. They know that black folks will always vote Democratic, even if they out and out screw Obama out of this election.
