19. Levin wasn't obsessed with going first
He was obsessed with ending the unfair and undemocratic say that Iowa and New Hampshire had in the primary process. Yes, we ALL pledged to follow the predetermine primary schedule. Apparently Dean decided he had the right to violate that agreement, giving Iowa and New Hampshire permission to move their dates but punishing Florida and MI.

BTW, it was about breaking Iowa and New Hampshire's strangle hold on the primary process, NOT helping Hillary. There was no reason for Hillary supporters to risk losing all of MI delegates, particularly since Hillary would've won MI anyway.

Have you been hanging out with Nancy Cassis? The film incentives have been one of the only bright spots in Michigan. It takes time for industry to grow and we will see more job growth in the years to come. Film production brought in 100 million dollars in revenue last year and only cost $48 million.
