While making multiple attempts to load a succession of 20K-50K image files to QBlog, I thought I'd do some reading. The academic volume I'm currently engrossed in is Stratagems and Spoils by F. G. Bailey. On page 30 (of my 1970 edition), I read:

"Would-be leaders who cannot recruit followers within the rules are tempted to bend the rules and enrol people previously disqualified."

This was the very same day that I read this in the Guardian:

"Clinton says she won Florida and Michigan, even though neither she nor Obama officially campaigned in either state and Obama's name did not appear on the ballot in Michigan."
