In a press conference, Florida Dem. chair Karen Thurman seemed a little pessimistic about the chances of the first draft of a mail-in primary being accepted by the DNC and making it through to the voters unimpeded. "We've got to come to some kind of conclusion," she said. "I'm not sure there is one." Specifically, she said, if the candidates do not agree, "this is not happening."

So far, Barack Obama does not agree.

At this point, it would seem as if the biggest hurdle to a new primary is the lack of a non-biased sponsor. Clinton allies have promised to put up their share of the money, but Obama allies in Florida, including his Florida finance chair, Kirk Wagar, are keeping their wallets closed.
