Kucinich To The Rescue For Florida, Michigan
Still wringing your hands over the dispute between the Democratic National Committee, the early states who played by the rules, and calendar leapfroggers Florida and Michigan?
Have no fear. Dennis Kucinich is going to solve all our problems.
The Cleveland congressman, whose own 2008 presidential campaign fizzled, has proposed allocating the Michigan and Florida delegates by the composite results of three public opinion polls.
“Simple, accurate and cost effective, this solution is nevertheless no substitute for actual voting,” Kucinich wrote in a letter to House colleagues. “But it is better than any other solution proposed thus far.” It also accomplishes the more important goal of getting Kucinich's name in the headlines.
