    And he doesn't have to win; just do well enough.  A win would be nice, but isn't necessary.  And a lot of people lean toward Clinton who might not otherwise because in their mind she's the candidate who stuck by them all along.  

    Frankly, I think she kept her name on the ballot assuming she'd win anyway, and the others may have taken their names off because they didn't believe they would win and wanted the contest to not matter.  But whether it was all that principled a decision on anyone's part, the perception is that Clinton cared about Michigan and the other Democrats didn't.  

    My parents still live there and I had to explain how it went down to my mom, who was pretty irritated with the Democratic Party in general and Edwards and Obama in particular.  That said, I think both my parents would vote for Obama in a do-over election.

    You can have your "Under God" back when I get my "Liberty and Justice For All" back.
