How to keep Hillary in the game ...
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, March 02, 2008

I think the Republicans realize that keeping Hillary in the game - the primaries - is important to wearing the eventual winner - Obama - down and making him vulnerable. It keeps the charges and counter-charges flying and it opens avenues of attack that a Republican might not exploit originally, but will gladly follow if a Democrat first uses it.

But if she loses Texas and could possibly lose Ohio, how in the world do Republicans help extend her stay?

Oh, I know, let's do Florida over again!
Florida Governor Charlie Crist said he'd support a repeat of the Democratic presidential primary so the state's delegates can be counted at the party's national convention.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said he's open to the possibility. Primary elections are paid for by a state's taxpayers, so the offer from Crist, a Republican, is ``very helpful'' because money is an issue, Dean said.

``We're very willing to listen to the people of Florida,'' Dean said on CNN's ``Late Edition'' program today.


Crist said, ``I think it's very important though that those delegates are seated.

``I'm hopeful that the Democratic National Committee comes to the conclusion it's the right thing to do,'' he said on CNN today.
I'm coughin' up a lung here. That's not only transparent, that's laughingly transparant - but "money is an issue" and if Obama can cosponsor a bill to ensure McCain can be president if he wins, well the least Charlie Crist can do is offer to prolong, oh, wait, it was Obama, er, well anyway, let's do FL over again, shall we? Please?

Doubtful it will happen that easily—I’m pretty sure the legislature will need to okay it, and while the GOP controls the legislature, the legislators have enough other stuff on their plate when they meet this spring that it will probably be end up dying in committee. Most things in Florida are only passed at the last minute—before it was the Democrats and Republicans can’t get along; now it’s the House and the Senate can’t get along even though the GOP controls both chambers— and this isn’t a big enough priority to make the cut.

Remind me again what grade we’re in? I thought "do-overs" weren’t allowed past the seventh grade, or at most the 12th grade. Although now that I think about it, I know some math professors who are allowing retests now in their freshman classes.
