Four candidates extend their Four-State Pledges

In order to further discredit the delinquent Michigan primary, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Bill Richardson, and Joe Biden have all filed to remove themselves from the Michigan primary ballot, something that was due today.  The other two candidates signing on to the Four-State Pledge, Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd have declined to do so.

This is an interesting move, and is effectively a blow to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, as the two states were likely to go her direction and still are, but without her major competitors on the ballot, such a win will be even more hollow.  These four candidates are likely to do the same in Florida as the filing deadline there approaches.
