Essential Estrogen: Michigan, Iowa and the Games the Politicos Play

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Iowans are by and large straight-forward people. Given that, it should
come as no surprise that to the average Iowan, the Michigan ballot
situation seems pretty cut and dry: Democratic presidential hopefuls
who honor their four-state pledge and support the nomination calendar
won't be on Wolverine State's ballot. As with most things in life, and
especially politics, the situation is more complicated. Five
individuals connected to five different campaigns have confirmed --
but only under condition of anonymity -- that the situation that
developed in connection with the Michigan ballot is not at all as it
appears on the surface. The campaign for Illinois Sen. Barack Obama,
arguably fearing a poor showing in Michigan, reached out to the others
with a desire of leaving New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton as the
only candidate on the ballot.
