Democrats Reject Michigan Primary - Clinton Intends to Stand

I applaud any move to 'Do the Right Thing' in the face of these overwhelming political parties. It is quite clear most Americans disapprove of and do not trust the big parties, anyone who cares enough to listen to the people in the face of these giants is going to find themselves with a HUGE popular following.

Five Democratic presidential candidates have pulled out of Michigan's primary election because it broke party rules in setting a date of 15 January 2008.
Barack Obama, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Bill Richardson and Dennis Kucinich have all said they will withdraw. Hillary Clinton still intends to stand.
The Democratic candidates had already all agreed not to campaign in Michigan after it jumped ahead in the calendar....

The 380,000-plus-word database presented here allows, for the first time, the Iraq-related public pronouncements of top Bush administration officials to be tracked on a day-by-day basis against their private assessments and the actual “ground truth” as it is now known. Throughout the database, passages containing false statements by the top Bush administration officials are highlighted in yellow. The 935 false statements in the database may also be accessed by selecting the “False Statements” option from the “Subject” pull-down menu and may be displayed within selected date ranges using the selection tool below. Searches may also be limited by person or subject, or both, by using the appropriate selections from the pull-down menus.
