5. Hard to win where no real election was held - kind of like grading imaginary exams....

  -How about split the delegates in MI 50/50 and split the delegates in FL 55%/45% for Hillary? Dawgs  Mar-14-08 10:56 AM   #0 
  - No on both. She beat Obama by a 3rd in FL. MI needs a do-over. nt  MookieWilson   Mar-14-08 10:57 AM   #1 
  - wrong  fascisthunter   Mar-14-08 11:00 AM   #3 
  - Hard to win where no real election was held - kind of like grading imaginary exams....  dmordue   Mar-14-08 11:08 AM   #5 
  - perhaps a 70/30 split in Florida and Mich at 60/40  papau   Mar-14-08 11:14 AM   #9 
     - There's no basis on which to divide the MI delegates in any way. There was no vote. nt  MookieWilson   Mar-14-08 11:20 AM   #11 
  - Wouldn't that be rewarding the Democratic leaders of Michigan and Florida  hedgehog   Mar-14-08 10:58 AM   #2 
  - It may well be to Obama's advantage to go ahead and redo Michigan.  totodeinhere   Mar-14-08 11:03 AM   #4 
  - re-do how?  JustABozoOnThisBus   Mar-14-08 11:08 AM   #6 
  - Actually excluding both Michigan and Florida would be my first choice too.  totodeinhere   Mar-14-08 11:12 AM   #7 
     - And a good chunk of the FL voters will vote for McCain in Nov. nt  MookieWilson   Mar-14-08 11:23 AM   #12 
        - I disagree - but I'm not going to fight over it.  FLDem5   Mar-14-08 12:52 PM   #21 
  - True - even a closer loss may prevent Clinton from claiming the popular vote (Incl FL/Mich) win  papau   Mar-14-08 11:24 AM   #13 
  - How about we play by the rules for once?  peace13   Mar-14-08 11:13 AM   #8 
  - again Obama got 33% in Fl while Clinton got 50% MI Obama 40% Clinton 55%  ElsewheresDaughter   Mar-14-08 11:20 AM   #10 
  - vote "undesided" in MI -- TRUE - so split the 40 to O=20 & E=20 & H=60, set FL at 70/30  papau   Mar-14-08 11:26 AM   #14 
     - That does not accurately account for those who stayed home because it was not valid. nt  MookieWilson   Mar-14-08 12:26 PM   #15 
        - True. But, a re-vote (Dem only) will bring out hordes  JustABozoOnThisBus   Mar-14-08 12:32 PM   #17 
           - Is there any way to keep the R's out? nt  MookieWilson   Mar-14-08 12:33 PM   #18 
              - Based on the January primary,  JustABozoOnThisBus   Mar-14-08 12:39 PM   #19 
  - fine whatever - just make it stop.  FLDem5   Mar-14-08 12:26 PM   #16 
  - Stop? There is no "Stop"  JustABozoOnThisBus   Mar-14-08 12:43 PM   #20 
  - No...  olshak   Mar-14-08 01:20 PM   #22
