    'Uncommitted' delegates are not Edwards delegates.
    They're not Obama delegates.  They're ones who make up their own mind and they'll end up breaking for whoever is in the lead in the end.  Woopie.

    In addition, there's no 'headlines' at stake here.  Nobody cares what happens in the Michigan Democratic Primary at this point.  It's a flawed ballot since Edwards/Obama dropped off.

    Had they not tried to pander to Iowa and New Hampshire by dropping of the ballot there would be zero talk of a 'Democrats for Mitt' idea.  But they did and in doing so took a vote that was already fairly meaningless since it lacked delegates and made it completely irrelevant.

    To vote 'uncommitted' to show some kind of support for candidates who already told you they didn't want you to vote for them in the primary is just silly.

    At least voting for Mitt I can feel like my vote is having some kind of an impact.

    Michigan Democrat for Mitt. (In the Primary)
