Florida Dems take the only defensible option

TALLAHASSEE | The Florida Democratic Party will stick with a Jan. 29 presidential primary even if it means losing all its nominating convention delegates, a party source said Saturday.

The Democratic National Committee gave the state party until Sept. 29 to come up with an alternative delegate selection plan to stay within party rules, such as caucuses or a vote-by-mail primary, but party leadership has rejected that idea. - AP - Sep 22, 7:34 PM EDT

Three cheers for the Florida Democratic Party! By taking a stand against the losing strategy and inflexibility of the DNC, Florida Democrats may yet salvage some hope for a Democratic victory in 2008.
