Sen. Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House suffered a blow Thursday when Michigan’s state Senate adjourned without passing a bill to schedule a new Democratic primary.
The Senate’s inaction makes it nearly impossible that a revote will occur.
Once again, we can see who’s to blame for the problems in Florida and Michigan. I’ve said it over and over–it’s the elected officials in those states. But Hillary will have you believe that it’s Barack Obama that’s doing it. Absurd, as I’ve already said.
A top Michigan Democrat expressed frustration Wednesday with Obama for not embracing the state’s proposal.
“The Obama people are blocking it in the Legislature,” said the Democratic source, who has not backed either candidate.
The source also said negotiators repeatedly and unsuccessfully have reached out to the campaign for input and cooperation.
The source said that Obama’s campaign has been asked to craft an alternative or to meet with the Clinton camp to work out an acceptable compromise, but that those requests have been met with silence.
However, a state senator who supports Obama said supporters of both sides are contributing to the logjam.
Yes, yes. The finger pointing is all over the place. I’m doing it, too. But the problem started at the state level, and has continued at the state level.
The question should be, Who started Florida and Michigan on these paths?
