Leave it to the Clintons to find a "work around"
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, September 06, 2007

As you know there's a bit of a war going on in both parties, but primarily in the Democratic party, about primary dates.

Michigan and Florida have moved their primary dates into January and the DNC has declared it would not seat the delegates of those two states at the national convention in Denver in '08.

The DNC has also warned the candidates not to campaign in those states and has asked them to take a pledge in that regard. Some have (and others have basically said they'd support the ban on campaigning), others have not. But leave it to the Clintons to find the ultimate "work around":
Former President Bill Clinton, due at Books & Books in Coral Gables starting at 8 a.m. today for a book signing, enjoyed a meal Wednesday at the Roasted Pepper in Pembroke Pines.

Word traveled fast he was there. When Michael Piompino heard on TV that Clinton was making a campaign appearance for wife Hillary in the Pines, he insisted his mother, Glenda, take him. Michael, 7, hasn't yet reached voting — or, for that matter, driving — age.

Pines commissioners finished city business by 9 p.m. and bolted for the restaurant. Shortly after 9 p.m., Clinton showed up in a black Chevy SUV. Clinton flashed a grin, waved to the cheering crowd and disappeared inside.

Clinton addressed a small crowd that included Pines Commissioner Angelo Castillo. ''He's encouraged us all to support Hillary,'' Castillo said.
Hey, Mr. Dean ... does that count as "campaigning?" I wonder how many book signings Bill has suddenly booked in Michigan?

Heh ...

While the timing of this is very amusing, in fairness to the former President I must say that the Book Signing has been in the works for a while now. In fact, when the President’s book was first published, he came down here to the same bookstore for signings.

I really don’t know how much longer Dean can keep this up. There’s simply no way he’s crazy enough to not seat the delegates of two states at the Convention. What’s he going to do? Have the Sheriff’s Office arrest them for trespassing?
