Florida Democrats aren’t going to get a do-over primary, and I’m glad.
It’s not that I think their vote shouldn’t count. It bothers me that so many ordinary citizens are going to see their votes mean nothing.
But Florida politicians really gall me. There was no good reason to move up Florida’s primary, except ego. After all, it’s much more important to be one of the first than to honor agreements, or have voters’ votes count.
And Howard Dean galls me. There’s no good reason not to count Florida’s votes, except ego. After all, it’s much more important to be right than than to keep thousands from being disenfranchised.
Who woulda thunk that ego had such a prominent place in politics?
