Conservative wag, Tucker Carlson, who has lost his bow-tie, in recent years, and with whom I agree with, some of the time, has blown it on his view how Obama and Clinton should handle a Florida and Michigan re-vote.
Generally speaking, when it comes to past Democratic Party sins, Carlson usually touts the "play by the rules," axiom.
This time he is basically saying, "Go through that red light, and break the law, and don't get a ticket for doing so."
Hillary Clinton broke the rules when she left her name on the Michigan Primary ballot, after the Democratic National Committee said that state could not hold an early primary...screw things up....and then have their vote count.
The Canadian born Governor of Michigan, could give a hoot, moved up the election, anyhow, and fooled many voters into thinking that their vote actually counted.
Even though 40% of the electorate voted, "anybody but Clinton," with no other major names on the ballot,
Tucker Carlson says that private money should be raised to have another election in June.
Florida is another example of this largess.
They flaunted the DNCC rules, and fooled many people into thinking that their vote would count, after they broke the Democratic Party rules. Many people stayed home thinking it would not count.
Since Obama is relatively unknown to the Florida electorate, and Mrs. Clinton has been known for 16 years...it naturally went to the former First Lady, when the illegal vote was counted.
So, Carlson, in his Plutocratic way, says let them eat votes again, by having some multi-millionaires fund the new election in June.
Since it was the Clinton campaign strategy to form early primaries to begin with----California wasted 60-90 million dollars by moving their non-event from June to February--while Obama was a lessor known, why not hold the California Primary over again, now that Senator Obama is well liked and has a national lead over Hillary Clinton?
It would be nice, if these same private interests, who have loads of money to waste, could take 5,000 people off the streets and hand them 100% health insurance.
To have a re-vote in Florida and Michigan--is to reward bad behavior--something MSNBC's Tucker Carlson is usually against.
