And for months, the vote I legally cast and the votes that nearly 2 million other Florida Democrats cast were was not counted towards tally for the nomination. That in the end, the national DNC did what it should have done months prior still did not excuse their inaction and ineptitude in the situation.

So what does this have to do with the op? Well, I don't want turn this too personal so as Precious Roy said a few threads down a review of the archives will explain it all. Needless to say, the level of apologetics, spin, feigned outrage and blame shifting occurred on a daily basis was quite unfortunate. Except that to try to shift blame from the national DNC (where blame was proper) to the various campaigns or congresspersons or state legislators simply because one could not fathom the fallibility of one's political idol in the situation shouldn't have occurred. And if someone wishes to cast one's self as representative of the principles and ideals of the "left of the left" portion of the Democratic Party, then one must first remove the plank out of one's own eye. And after 2000, and living in Florida in 2000 there are some positions that ought not to be taken.
