  - Agreed...from so many standpoints...  MercutioATC   May-17-08 09:44 AM   #6 
  - If situation were reversed, Obama supporters would want MI/FL votes counted.  MGKrebs   May-17-08 09:37 AM   #2 
  - Not me. I appreciate rules and those who play by them.  SoonerPride   May-17-08 09:40 AM   #4 
  - What rules are you referring to?  MGKrebs   May-17-08 10:54 AM   #36

     - The so called national ad buy  dsc   May-17-08 09:56 AM   #16 
        - Riiiight. Good logic. "killing the MI revote" entails changing the rules  sfaprog   May-17-08 10:05 AM   #20 
        - The "national ad" buy was well within the rules. Counting MI, FL--not so much!  flpoljunkie   May-17-08 10:08 AM   #22 
           - no it wasn't  dsc   May-17-08 10:12 AM   #24

  - That may be true, but the situtation is not reversed is it..  walldude   May-17-08 09:52 AM   #12 
  - Is it trite to remind you of what we learned in 2nd grade?  NCevilDUer   May-17-08 10:35 AM   #32 
  - My position would be exactly the same  dsc   May-17-08 09:38 AM   #3 
  - Likewise, the Obama mob here would be posting countless threads  QC   May-17-08 09:41 AM   #5 
  - For many of us, at least, it isn't about the's about the rules.  MercutioATC   May-17-08 09:46 AM   #8 
  - It's strange to see Democrats obsessing over rules,  QC   May-17-08 09:56 AM   #17 
     - Actually, the ultimate responsibility falls on the voters.  MercutioATC   May-17-08 10:18 AM   #27 
        - I vote every time the polls are open and still have Republicans representing me.  QC   May-17-08 10:28 AM   #29 
           - Oh, we're in complete agreement about the silliness of the schedule...  MercutioATC   May-17-08 10:52 AM   #35 
  - Frankly I'm surprised.....  pompano   May-17-08 10:06 AM   #21 
  - Perhaps a better framing of your question would be; "If it was all over by Super Tuesday...  DAGDA56   May-17-08 09:45 AM   #7 
  - Perhaps. Nevertheless, what's the right thing for the *democratic* party to do? n/t  lumberjack_jeff   May-17-08 09:51 AM   #10 
  - You don't speak for me.  Straight Shooter   May-17-08 09:51 AM   #11 
  - Unfortunately, Clinton also doesn't think MI and FL should count  sfaprog   May-17-08 09:54 AM   #14 
     - OP is referring to the political situation as it exists currently. n/t  Straight Shooter   May-17-08 10:03 AM   #18 
        - Oh, I'm sorry - there was a change in rules midway through the contest?  sfaprog   May-17-08 10:09 AM   #23 
           - Stay focused. OP said "if situation was reversed"  Straight Shooter   May-17-08 10:17 AM   #26 
              - Stay focused. We haven't gone "back in time"  sfaprog   May-17-08 10:30 AM   #31 
                 - So we can cancel the May 31 rules committee meeting?  MGKrebs   May-17-08 11:09 AM   #39 
                    - Well, somebody has to "work out" Clinton's proposed change to the rules she previously agreed to  sfaprog   May-17-08 11:20 AM   #41 
                       - I don't think the rules actually stipulated a specific punishment,  MGKrebs   May-17-08 12:22 PM   #43 
  - I respect the rules. I'm in Florida. We don't count... big deal... Gobama!  Katzenkavalier   May-17-08 09:55 AM   #15

  - If the situation were reversed Biden would be in the lead.  MGKrebs   May-17-08 11:12 AM   #40
