Dean on Board

DNC Chair Howard Dean has come out in favor of a re-vote in Florida and Michigan. The states held primaries in early January, but without Obama and John Edwards on the ballot in Michigan and with only Hillary campaigning in Florida. The DNC warned the states their delegates would not be seated if their primaries were held so early, and have stuck to it.

Now, with the contest's razor thin margin, re-votes could go a long way toward deciding the nomination. Clinton won on the first go-around in both states, and demographics, blue collar workers in Michigan and older voters in Florida, favor the NY Senator.

Asked to comment on whether the re-votes would take place, an excited Dean said: "We're gonna go to Michigan and then we're gonna go to Florida... heeeeeya!"

(sorry, I couldn't resist).
