Why won't the DNC pay for a do-over in Michigan and Florida

Professor Bob Guell, Economics asked that I post this for discussion:

The noted Israeli diplomat Abba Eban once said of the Palestians, "they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity." The same, I think, should be said of the Democratic Party. Take the question of the "do-over" for Michigan and Florida. Both states are happy to hold primaries in May or June but refuse to pick up the tab. The DNC refuses to pick up the tab. How big is the tab? about $25,000,000 per state. This from a party whose leading candidates are capable of raising more than $80,000,000 a month even when they are limited to $2,000 per person.

This Presidential election is there's for the taking yet they are going to run the risk of a redux of Chicago 68 rather than coming up with $50,000,000 to run an election that will decide who wins. MORONIC. The only way they lose to McCain (who I support btw) is by eating each other alive.....and that is exactly what they seem bent on doing.

Because everyone fears a very different result..you know, "buyers remorse."
