Campaign 2008, Florida, and the Convention


Everything we do in Florida--waiting in a movie line, driving on the Interstate, even performing our jobs now that we're about to have a guns in the workplace law, follows a kind of social Darwinism. It makes just as much sense to predicate the seating of our delegation upon this principle as upon any of the other solutions they're discussing. It would make for great TV, too.

I believe the delegates should be seated based upon the Florida primary. After all, if Obama had ads out doesn't that mean he intended Florida to count until he lost? Was that when he took his name off the Michigan ballot? I don't know how to penalize him, because I don't think there is anything in the rules that cover it. So just go back to the results of the primary. I wonder (Senator Leahy?) how many others were complicit in Obama's advertising in Florida.
