True only if it suits YOUR candidate's purposes. An election held and paid for by the government qualifies as a government institution. A party cannot devise an agreement that subverts the intent of equal protection and the citizenry, i.e. the voting public, was not a party to the agreement. If you think that Florida is going to set back and take this, think again. And don't misunderestimate the Clintons.
How odd to have our chief liberal on BWOT standing on black and white rule interpretation. I sense an oxymoron being born.
Has nothing to do with MY candidate's purposes. As stated before, Obama is my second choice.
Here is my take on the whole issue. The RULES Committee set their rules. Everyone agreed. The problem is simply one between three entities: DNC, FDP and MDP. No one else is in that mix. The infractions occurred WHEN THE FDP and MDP SCHEDULED
On THAT date everyone was notified, from the presumptive winner Clinton to the lowly sixth place Obama. Everyone agreed to the punishment meted by DNC. Florida and Michigan had plenty of time to change their dates but chose not to.
Now as for your contention that the state of Florida can/will get involved, you might want to read up on Primaries and their ownership.
And as for me being the chief liberal, you really, REALLY need to understand the concept of Liberalism. You seem to be off about 60 degrees. If you can focus long enough to remember, I am the guy who suggests that we NOT have deficit spending. The guy who suggests we build Nuclear plants, the guy who suggests we enforce banking regulations and mining regulations. The guy who suggests we tighten credit even though it means that some people don't get to buy a house at the drop of a hat.
You really need to get a grip on basic concepts.
