The Michigan Primary

Because Hillary Clinton is the only major candidate on the ballot, the Democratic primary in Michigan is relatively meaningless. If you are voting in the Republican primary, have a nice day.

How come Hillary is on the ballot? I thought the party spanked the state for fast-forwarding the primary and pretty much blackballed it. I thought nobody would be on the ballot.

They did, but Hillary was not able (or chose not) to withdraw her name "in time."

Hillary simply chose not to, saying that it was pointless since the delegates wouldn't be seated anyways, and an unnecessary "slap in the face" to Michigan. It was Kucinich that tried to remove his name, but didn't file the paperwork in time.

It seems like a waste of money---MI having so little these days---to hold a "half a primary." I am convinced there can be no useful info gained. The Republican vote will undoubtedly be skewed by the circumstances, and all we'll get is TV talkers making predictions and analyzing their analyzings. More time off real topics...
