Perhaps the most poignant statement of today's DNC Rules Panel, was offered by Donna Brazile, Superdelegate and Panel Committee Member. Brazile's comment came as a counter to Governor Blanchard, Hillary Clinton supporter. Blanchard denies the Michigan election was a "flawed primary" as Congressman Bonior and others pointed out:
"You must NOT turn you back on our loyal state," said Blanchard. The candidates taking their names off the ballot "was a knowing, willing decision. It doesn't make the election flawed. It makes a flawed strategy."
Brazile, driving home the obvious, stated that "Changing the rules in the middle of the game is called cheating."
Donna Brazile: "My Mama Taught Me to Play by the Rules."
The DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee convened this morning, after a heated late night meeting where a resolution could not be reached.
