Why another Florida and Michigan Primary will Never Happen
No matter how much Christ and the Rethugs try to mess around with our nomination. And no matter how much people bitch about it in the MSM (and press). If the polls show anything close to a blowout like it was when they voted...it'll be seen as a backroom slight against Obama (especially since he's likely to keep his huge delegate lead). What's most likely to happen is, SOME of their delegates will remain stripped, yet some will be reinstated. Hillary will not be given a damn thing, both camps will have to agree on a proper delegate split. It likely won't be 50/50...but it won't be 65/35 in favor of Clinton either. Florida has a much better shot than Michigan, because FL could be a swing state...and you don't want to piss people off there.

The only other option will be to have a caucus. Though, Clinton has already said she wouldn't accept that. Hillary wants to be HANDED her delegates when technically they don't even count. So to make them count, there has to be a redo. So either we have a caucus, or the delegates will be split which would help Obama in the end.

Truth be told, if it came down to me there would be nothing done. FL and Michigan broke the rules so they payed for it. PERIOD! People in Michigan and FL should be mad at their state officials not the DNC.

2. Maybe...I just despise the idea of people trying to game the system
and create a better outcome for themselves.
