One last note on the Florida and Michigan controversy. Regardless of who you support and regardless of how you feel about seating the delegates, there is only one person to blame for this controversy. Howard Dean.
As Pat Buchanan just pointed out on MSNBC, God I can’t believe I’m citing him, the Republican party handled this much better than the Democratic party. They penalized FL and MI but still made sure that their voice were counted. When the DNC stripped ALL of the delegates from these two states, they invited this fall out. Especially after allowing IA and NH to move their dates up. There’s only one person to Blame and thats Howard Dean.
Look I’m a Dean supporter, I think he should stay chairman of the DNC, but he screwed the pooch big time on this one.
Part of me can’t help but wonder how much his feud with the Clinton’s influenced his decision…
