Saturday = Meldown Or Mind-Meld

"Those people who believe all problems have solutions may be unfamiliar with the inner workings of the Democratic Party. On Saturday, the party’s Rules and Bylaws Committee will try to solve a big problem, in order to avoid a huge problem in order to prevent a train wreck. The big problem is what to do about Michigan and Florida, two states stripped last year of their delegates to the Democratic National Convention because both broke party rules and moved their primaries up too early in the election year."

Train wreck is an understatement. The question is whether the DNC will follow the rules it set a few years ago, the rules that were broken by democrat party activists in Michigan and Florida.

And if it breaks its own rules, what does it say about this party?

Why does any of this matter? Because Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have egos the size of Mt. Rushmore, and each needs the DNC to rule a particular way (different for each, of course) in order to grab the dem nomination for president.
