The latest story about Michigan's presidential primary is sobering. On this issue I disagree with Keith. I do not see justification for the actions of the Democratic National Commitee or the presidential candidates.
While the parties are non-governmental organizations and have the right to govern their own affairs, I find it horrible that the DNC would restrict the decision making process to a select group of its members. Of course the DNC can do what it wants. But so can every democrat in Michigan and I think that money and support from Michigan will plummet for the DNC and the presidental candidates. Michigan Demcrats have no obligation to a party that shows no obligation to Michigan Democrats.
I have a feeling that in 2008 Michigan and Florida will not go for the democratic candidate but for either the Republicans or for Unity 08. This is the price of the sanctions that has not been mentioned in the news stories.
