The more I think about our "PRIMARY" the angrier I get.

We have been denied the chance to vote for our candidates by
our legislature.

No voter in Michigan that I have talked to wanted to go "first"
so badly that they were willing to give up their voting rights
and/or delegates to the convention to do so.

All of the candidates with the exception of Gravel signed a PLEDGE
that they would honor the rules of the Democratic Party and NOT
campaign or participate in the primaries of states that violated
the deadlines set by the party. The party DID compromise over
the old Iowa/New Hampshire first sticking point by allowing two
other states to participate early on a rotating basis.

Kucinich was not allowed to take his name off the ballot by Teri Lynn Land.
He TRIED to uphold his pledge.

Clinton and Dodd just outright violated theirs.

I will vote "uncommitted" and let the chips fall where they may,
but I am GROSSLY unhappy with the influence that the DLC has had
in the running of our state.

Good luck with finding volunteers for the Presidential Election
if this trend continues!
