"It is about adding more states to our nation so we as a nation should have a say if we even want 56 states. Is this a DNC effort to make Obama retroactively correct?"
I'm sure you were joking, Kanrei, but for those who repeat this without irony, Obama merely misspoke when he referred to "57 states" in the 2008 Democratic primaries. There were 57 primary contests that year for the Dems (50 states, Puerto Rico, DC, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, Armed Forces Abroad, and Democrats Abroad). He meant to say 57 primaries.
