1. Howard Dean has said that it is not fair to punish the voters in Florida and Michigan
Dean has said that it is not the voters fault that their primary dates were moved up to January.

He has said that he wants to find a solution that respects the rights of voters who took part in these 2 primaries.

If such a solution can be found by the DNC rules Committee then I hope both the candidates will accept it.

I fundamentally disagree with the idea that by raising this issue, Hillary Clinton is taking a "nuclear option".

Ignoring the rights of voters in Florida and Michigan could be very dangerous for the Democratic Party.

In particular, it would undermine the chances of the Democratic ticket to win these States in November.
