Democrats Boycott Rogue Primaries

Democratic presidential wannabees Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, and Bill Richardson pledge not to campaign in states that hold early nominating contests in violation of party rules.

The three signed onto a pledge circulated by Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina, which have the Democratic Party's blessing to hold early primaries. The pledge says they will avoid competing in any other states that vote before February 5.

A week ago, Democratic Party officials decided to disenfranchise Florida voters, unless the state party agrees to hold its primary later in the 2008 election calendar.

The Democrats' boycott won't amount to much if the frontrunners don't participate.
