Bill Clinton Says FL and MI Voters Disenfranchised

Bill Clinton continues inject himself in the race -- and make the case for Hillary's nomination.  First Read has this interesting quote from Bill at even tin Indiana this morning:

"She can win this race, and we have got to win. And she will win in Florida. And I must say that this new strategy of denying and disempowering and disenfranchising the voters in Florida and Michigan is I believe a terrible mistake. Hillary believes their votes should be counted. And I don't know how we're gonna go to those people in the general election and say you gotta vote for us even though we dumped all over you in the primary. We let New Hampshire go out of turn. They had a Democratic Secretary of State. The Florida voters are totally innocent. They asked to vote on time. So for all those reasons I think she's the most electable.”

(Emphasis mine.)

Granted, Clinton is making this argument purely because it advances his needs.  If he were in Obama's position, he'd be making Obama's argument.  It's not about principle, of course, it's about convenience

Still, you can't help but agree that there is some credence to his argument.  In fact, the Democrats' problem, in regards to whether or not to seat the delegates in Florida and Michigan, is that both sides of the debate can make compelling arguments.
