Clinton lone top Democrat in Mich. vote
by UPI

DETROIT - Hillary Clinton, the only leading Democrat on the muscle-less Michigan primary election ballot Tuesday, easily came out on top.

With 94 percent of the vote counted, CNN reported Clinton received 55 percent, with 40 percent voting "uncommitted." Long-shot contender Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio garnered 4 percent.

Because of a dispute over the primary date, the Democratic National Committee barred the seating of the state's delegates at this summer's presidential nominating convention. The Detroit News reported the DNC decision essentially made Michigan's Democratic contest meaningless.

As a result, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards kept their names off the ballot in October.

Clinton, the junior senator from New York, was the only front-runner listed on the Michigan ballot.

Trying to thwart a definitive Clinton win in the Great Lakes State, there was a push by other campaigns to urge Democratic voters to vote "uncommitted."
