31. Still ignoring the question, huh?
I guess I'll just move on since you don't seem to have an answer as to what was the purpose of IA and NH moving.

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

Actually I don't. I wanted the rules to be applied to ALL states.

"Thank GOODNESS we DID have Howard Dean at the helm to enforce the Party's rules. A more politically cynical Chairman would have CAVED."

Dean violated the rules and because you're a fan of his, you're willing to turn a blind eye to it. Unfortunately Dean caved into political pressure from IA and NH which has allowed them to hold onto the UNDEMOCRATIC advantage they have received in the primary process for years. The odd thing is there was no reason to allow IA and NH to move so Dean made himself a hypocrite for nothing. Hopefully Kaine has the political will to help develop a fair primary system that will hold all states to the same standard.
