Krugman Endorses a Revote

Writing in the New York Times, Paul Krugman ends a rather anti-Obama column with a call for a revote in Michigan and florida. As regular readers know, a revote in these state has been the cause celebre
with me at the Punditburo.
Thanks to Tuesday’s results, the nomination fight will go on to Pennsylvania in April, and probably beyond — and rightly so. It’s now clear that Mrs. Clinton, like Mr. Obama, has strong grass-roots support that cannot be simply brushed aside without alienating voters that the party will badly need in November. So the Democratic National Committee had better get moving on plans to do Michigan and Florida over, to give the eventual nominee the legitimacy he or she needs.

He's right. This is what I (and, admittedly other people, such as the staff of the New Republic) have been saying all along.
