Rules? What Rules?

The Democratic Primary tonight was not much more than a beauty contest ... err ... sorry Mrs Clinton ... I mean, because Florida moved its primary date in front of Super Tuesday, Howard Dean punished the state by taking away its delegates.

All of the candidates agreed to respect that decision ... well sort of ... Here's Senator Clinton on MSNBC tonight with Keith Oby, (and the best part the hotel fire alarm goes off right a the interview starts. Can u say "Vast right wing conspiracy.").

Here's the AP's take:
Last year, the national party stripped Florida of its delegates as punishment for moving its primary ahead of Feb. 5 and the candidates pledged to bypass the state. At stake Tuesday were 185 delegates. Still, Clinton winked at that pledge, holding two closed fundraisers in recent days and scheduling a rally with supporters after the polls closed in Florida.

Here's more ... wink, wink, nod, nod.
