Politics as Football
Terry Mitchell uses a sports analogy to illustrate Hillary Clinton’s bid to count the Florida and Michigan delegates:
Suppose that the Dallas Cowboys play the Houston Texans in an exhibition game next August and the Texans win. Then suppose that the Texans subsequently appeal to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to have the game counted in the regular season standings. How fair would that be?
This isn’t a completely accurate illustration, in that the Cowboys were at least on the playing field in the example.
