As Democrats prepared to examine about 17,000 provisional ballots that would determine a winner in New Mexico’s presidential caucus, many were very critical of Democratic Party officials for how they managed the election.
That criticism is unfair. We must remember that New Mexico is the nation’s Banana Republic and we have trouble managing any kind of election.Remember the last two presidential elections? It was weeks before the results were known.What is happening now is only par for our course.Why should Clinton or Obama want to know results any sooner than we ever provided them?Of course, we are the laughing stock of the nation and it is astonishing how, no matter what kind, we simply cannot run an election in this state without delays, problems and controversy.Oh well, just another day in New Mexico.
