Calling for a political changeup

The Baltimore Sun

Count the Votes may again become Florida's unofficial motto if the state's delegation is not seated at the Democratic National Convention this summer.

The decision by the Democratic Party to ostracize the delegations from Florida and Michigan (after both states bucked party rules and moved up their primaries) has the locals here wondering what they've got to do to get some representation in the tight race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Wednesday, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm issued a joint declaration calling on the national Democratic Party leaders to do something to assure the two states participate in the party's nominating process.

Of course, that was easy for Crist, since he's a Republican and keeping the controversy in the headlines probably doesn't hurt GOP nominee John McCain.
