Primary votes for Florida and Michigan

The daily email from the Clinton campaign requested comments for the Democratic National Committee on the issue of the primary votes for Michigan and Florida. Here is the comment I submitted:

The national party organization can of course recommend what actions a state party organization SHOULD take, but state party organizations MUST have the FREEDOM to make their own decisions, including when to schedule their state primary elections.

Or if the national party organization feels it necessary to "punish" someone for deciding when to schedule a state primary, by all means go ahead and punish SOMEBODY, such as the state party leaders, but punishing the VOTERS by depriving of their right to vote is absolutely unacceptable, and downright UNAMERICAN. Even President Bush and VP Cheney have not stooped to this low a level of deprivation of the rights of common citizens.

Let the voters of Michigan and Florida have a say for who will be the next Democratic nominee for President of the United States!
