Democrats' Primaries Could Keep Going And Going And Going...

So the Democrats are just determined to deny any down time at all for those of us who've been running around the country covering the 2008 campaign. Not only will to process go on until at least April 22 and the Pennsylvania primary, it may well go a lot longer.

It looks harder and harder for the Democratic Party to shunt aside the question of the disputed Michigan and Florida contests--stripped of their delegates by accelerating their primary dates against party rules.

That means there's a good chance of do-over contests in June--long after the party leadership expected the nomination race to be settled.

When will they happen? Caucuses or primaries? Who will pay for them? Stay tuned.
