"Uncommitted"

While the votes don't count in Michigan (primarily because the Democratic Party's name is a misnomer -- they're actually anti-democratic), the Democrats who did vote show some troubling signs for Hillary Clinton, who did appear on the ballot, though Obama and Edwards did not. It seems 40% of Democratic voters would rather vote "uncommitted" than vote for HIllary Clinton. Sure, she still beat "uncommitted," but that's a lot of people who said, I'd rather vote against you."

In fact, I think we should have "none of the above" as a choice in every election. If "none of the above" wins, we have to have a whole new set of candidates -- and those who ran and lost to "none of the above" would be barred from that immediate re-run of the race (sure, let them try again next election cycle). Maybe we'd get someone worth voting for that way.
