I can't vote for a Repub. I'm sorry, Kos, I just can't do it. I understand the logic; yes, it would help us out if the GOP race lingered on and stayed a 3-man race. Winning MI would certainly help Romney's campaign. But he doesn't need our help and dismissing tomorrow's Michigan Democratic primary as a "straw poll" is bad strategy for Democrats.
I'll say right off the bat that I'm not a Hillary supporter. My dream candidate would be Al Gore. I'm currently leaning towards Edwards but Obama would be an acceptable second choice. As we all know, neither of them will be on the ballot tomorrow. They caved in to the DNC and Iowa and NH and are punishing Michigan voters for something a decision we did not make (a topic for another diary). The DNC is also currently not planning on seating Michigan's delegates at the convention.
I agree with our local lawmakers; that will not stick. No state will be disenfrancised at the convention. If Clinton manages to win all of Michigan's delegates, she could theoretically count them in her column in Denver. If 15% (or more) of the voters here (statewide? per district?) vote "Uncommitted," there will at least be a viable percentage of delegates who will be able to align themselves with an alternate candidate.
Another problem with the "Democrats for Romney" campaign is that Mitt Romney does not need our help. He has been the front-runner in the MI GOP primary for months (EDIT: up until recently, IIRC), he is consolidating all his resources here, and he is vastly outspending his rivals. Other than a lone McCain commercial, his ads are the only ones I've seen on television here, and Romney and Ron Paul yard signs are the only ones I've seen (other than a lonely Kucinich sign).
(EDIT: I forgot to add that Romney is also the current GOP delegate leader.)
The fact of the matter is that Iowa and New Hampshire's control over the primary season will hopefully end soon (I know, the MSM and the average American may forget all about this issue until the next election, but I still hold out hope). We need a national primary and we need candidates with a backbone who will be willing to stand up to these "early states." But for now, we have to play the game with the rules that we have. I am a Democrat and I plan to vote in the Democratic primary.
