i just read up on it, so i suppose the thread can close unless people want to discuss obama's and edwards' withdrawals from the MI ballot, the
penalties placed on the MI primaries due to some date-related punishment, and the fact that almost half of the MI democrats that voted actually voted
"On 1 December 2007, the DNC has determined that the date of Michigan's 15 January 2008 primary violates party rules and has decided to strip the
state of its delegation. The determination was made official on 5 January 2008. Michigan had 128 pledged delegate votes (83 district, 28 at-large, and
17 PLEO) and 28 unpledged delegate votes (17 unpledged DNC members, 1 Governor, 2 Democratic U.S. Senators, 6 Democratic U.S. House Members, and 2
add-ons). Total delegate votes changed from 156 to 0."
makes you wonder why people went out and voted at all.
