Florida primary

Random thoughts...

If at some point the Democrat Party allows delegates from punished states of Florida and Michigan to count towards the nomination will there be a flying uproar? I don't consider myself an expert by any means.

For example, if the race is decided at the convention and Barack is chosen, how will Hillary's people react to having the Florida delegates disallowed? Will sunshine state voters scream about being disenfranchised? And finally, how many people on the street really understand what in the world is going on (or care)?

Just wondering.


As to the GOP side, so long Rudy. Who could have guessed back in September that both him and Thompson would be out before Super Tuesday? All in all, looks like a big night for the Democrats.


If Johnny Mac goes on to win the nomination--and he's got a flying start--can we officially say that Saddam Hussein killed Reagan conservatism? Had Bush not gone after him or had the invasion ended as smoothly as Rummy thought the blowback wouldn't have been nearly as volcanic. Before Iraq he was still riding a hero wave, leading the charge against bin Laden with a successful campaign in Afghanistan and tax cuts for all. In the end only Bush knows if it was worth it or not.
