Michigan Needs to Hold Another Event to Decide Pick Delegates

I recently heard the idea that Michigan ought to hold a caucus, and use that instead of our sham of a primary. This would be perfectly legal, would not break the rules, and would have several things to recommend it. First, if we keep the same results from our primary, then seating the Michigan delegates becomes a political football between the Clinton and Obama camps. Seating the delegates would in fact give Clinton an unfair advantage: she was the only candidate on the ballot. Even if we were to throw "uncommitted" to Obama, it would still be the result of an unequal primary.
In this historic election, Democrats want to have the chance to choose between these two candidates, and Michiganians are no exception.
