MI And FL Represented On Credentials Committee?
By Big Tent Democrat
So says Marc Ambinder:
The size of the committee will not be reduced even though Florida and Michigan are not participating as delegate-producing bodies, according to a DNC spokesperson. Florida and Michigan WILL be represented on the credentials committee.Let me say this, that if Obama and the Democratic Party force themselves to exclude Florida and Michigan from the Democratic Convention, as Howard Dean seems prepared to do (though I must add that Kos is absolutely wrong about Dean's position on FL and MI. Dean favored revotes - OBAMA blocked the revotes), kiss Florida and Michigan goodbye for November. Chalk up 44 electoral votes for John McCain right now. There is STILL time to fix this - with party run revotes. Those who argue against this now are arguing against the interests of the Democratic Party in order to favor the interests of Barack Obama. For all the talk of Hillary's selfishness, and all pols are selfish, the biggest, most damaging act of political selfishness remains Barack Obama's blocking of revotes for Florida and Michigan.
