I live have lived in Michigan all of my life. I fully understand the losses we have experienced here. I am not happy with those who thought of their political careers before constituents and created this mess.

I called as many lawmakers as I possibly could and asked that they follow the rules set by the DNC and not support a Re-Do of hte primary for one reason. That was that Senator Clinton has been given a huge pass, and not disclosed or discussed her upcoming Fraud Case where she could possibly be charged with perjury.

The Clinton’s are named defendants in a Civil Fraud Case connected to Campaign Finance irregularities and have not disclosed the appeal of the case. There will be a trial date set at a hearing on April 25th, just 3 days after the key Pennsylvania Primary for the Fraud Case Paul v. Clinton in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

We have two candidates that the DNC is supporting. I seriously doubt if Senator Obama was a named defendant in a Civil Fraud case related to Campaign Finance, he would still be in the race. I also doubt that Senator Clinton will win in November because the GOP has already enlisted the assistance of Citizens United (a 527) to make a movie called "Hillary - The Movie" to "highlight" all of the negative experience she has (including this upcoming trial). The DNC needs to have a strong standard and back a candidate without this baggage who can win in November.

Joyful Alternative

And in the meantime, a federal judge has declared Michigan's primary law illegal.

I live in Florida and spend some time talking to the Democrat volunteers at the table outside the polling station. They were very friendly and chatty as we talked about various local initiatives and I signed a petition for a local issue.

The topic strayed to the Presidential race, and one of them chattered on that she had it on good authority that the delegates would be seated in the end. I didn't do anything to discourage the exchange for a minute or so and got an earful of how Sen. Clinton was the greatest things since sliced bread and that there were plenty of efforts underway to get her seated as the nominee regardless of the silly dust-up about the primary.

When I questioned the fairness of this their faces fell like steel doors. When I suggested that I found it odd to have this conversation in a likely Clinton stronghold such as my neighborhood and wondered whether it would be the same in the largely poor black neighborhoods a few miles west you would have thought I had stolen their cats and painted them green.

I'm frankly surprised they didn't take my coffee back.

So, as one observer on the ground - in a state with Clinton Machinery bolted to the bedrock like natural formations - I find the whole Florida "non" primary overwhelmingly suspicious. This is the same state that houses not a few of the Rich Democratic Donors who just tried to threaten Speaker Pelosi with zipping up their purses if she didn't shut up and give them the car keys.

I'm very cranky with the folks who took away my primary vote in the first place, and among those particularly the apparent Clinton Machinery that believed all along it would work in their favor.

I'll get my chance to vote in primaries in four years, but this time there is nothing worth salvaging.
