56. Well, in a way I do look at it like that.
Not sure why, but I do. When a former president who played such a prominent role in the 04 primaries comes in and plays a prominent role in the campaign of a man who said he will run Independent if he loses I do see a problem.

There is too much involvement in primaries by party leaders. Florida really has a lot of it going on. Karen Thurman has discouraged primaries though she sort of denies it. She told me she just did not want them in some areas. Ok, fine, I can see that. But who gets to decide the races they pick candidates in.

We have Tim Mahoney, Christine Jennings, Rick Penberthy and a couple of others being handpicked here in Florida.

I just worry that it is hard enough to get anyone to run as a Democrat in Florida, and Karen and Rahm make it harder by picking and getting involved.

I am all for getting Democrats elected. I just think we don't have fair primaries when everyone gets involved in them.
