operation chaos? hardly.
some of us actually think hillary has principle on her side.
she is doing what those of us who backed her have demanded. she is not in control of many of us.I did not like her personaly, but thought her ideas where good sometimes and that she would fight hard for them...now her run has made me think she is as bull headed as Bush, and she does not know when you have lost and its time to call it a day.
The Rules Committee did the right thing here. They approved what the Florida State Party & Michigan State Party asked for.
This whole debacle with these two state primaries has happened several times before. The 50% penalty is the established norm for intentionally moving out of order.
The order is extremely important as you can't have every primary on the first allowable day... there's no way candidates could campaign that way.
You also don't want a lot of big delegate states to front load the primaries because that effectively ends the primaries too soon, before any smaller states get to weigh in.
The solution so this doesn't keep happening is have two lottery machines. One with big delegate states and one with small delegate states. Every three years or so draw from the machines starting with a small delegate state and set the new order of rotation.
Three more small primaries... set the nominee... and then the heat really starts to cook McSame's goose!
Howard Dean has been on my crapolla list for a long time. he wants an easy ride.Hey, I think you're right, and Hillary should in fact take it all the way to the convention.
