The Demo Memo: Michigan slides by with seated delegates that it didn't deserve

Excerpted from this post at The Demo Memo

The votes of the Michigan and Florida delegations to the 2008
Democratic National Convention will be counted, sort of. Florida's
democrats had no choice in switching their party's nominating contest
sooner than the DNC mandated. The republican majorities in both houses
of that legislature are republican. They decided to move up the
primary despite the warnings issued by the RNC. Even though I'm sure
some leaders in the Florida Democratic Party didn't mind the shift, it
still wasn't fair to the rank-and-file democratic votes of the state,
who most certainly would end up getting short-changed in the long run.
Michigan's democrats, from the office of Governor Jennifer Granholm,
to the craw of Senator Carl Levin, have long coveted an earlier date.
