30. I have a tepid opinion of Granholm that was not changed by
...her primary alliance.

The deadline wasn't set for IA and NH.
It was set for the 46 states that were
to come after the first 4.

Sorry you have such a hard time
with the democratic party's guidelines
and rules for running a level-fielded
primary.

Everybody wants to go first, but
everybody has to form an orderly
line.

And I wasn't "blinded" by Dean...
my eyes were OPENED when the primary
scheme was outlined to us at party
functions and NO ONE wanted to
force the Party's hand and risk
losing delegates just to go "first".

Not here in Macomb County, anyway.

We were aware of what the rules were
and the MDP decided for all of us that
they just didn't care.

Thank GOODNESS we DID have Howard Dean
at the helm to enforce the Party's rules.

A more politically cynical Chairman
would have CAVED.
