FromDC2Iowa: "Least-Worst" Florida, Michigan Solution
Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa
Here's a 'Least-Worst' Solution for Florida, Michigan... As president, Bill Clinton used to talk about those who "work hard and play by the rules." He and his wife are still working hard. They just don't want to play by the rules. The Democratic National Committee's rules for this primary season -- agreed to by all -- were that the penalty for additional states moving their primaries earlier would be the inability to have their delegates seated at the party's national convention. Candidates were not to campaign or otherwise participate in such states' primaries. The nominee would be whoever got the most delegates (elected and super) from rules-abiding states.
