As a Michigan voter, the most important thing that happened today was the recognition–on the part of Mark Brewer and Carl Levin–that our January primary was not a real vote. That meant more to me as anything else that happened today–it was more important to me than the numbers that came out of the process.
The outcome makes me profoundly sad. But it was the least worst outcome.
The votes–in the end–were actually strong majorities. Democracy can be ugly. But as they say, it’s the least worst process.
