Barack Obama, John Edwards, Bill Richardson, and Joe Biden have all asked to have their names taken off the ballot for the Michigan primary. This is in response to Michigan moving their primary before Feb. 5, which is in violation of DNC rules. Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd will stay on the ballot, but has pledged not to campaign in the state.

I think the Democrat party is ready to implode. The States won't toe the line. The DNC appears powerless to do anything about it. The candidates are split on what they are supposed to do or should do. All because some states want 1st shot at the nominees. Sounds like it may be time to explore a national primary.

Feds vs. the States has been going on for a while...in this case I think it's great that some of the candidates have taken a stand, possibly at the risk of not winning the party nomination. I think it sucks that they all aren't in this together, however, but I'm not really surprised to see division in politics of any kind.
