There is this previous article:

mmc could not create the snap-in:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_22637625.html

Which has this solution:
Install MMC 3.0 to fix the corruption in your current MMC installation and upgrade at the same time. Talk about killing 2 birds with one stone.

When you try to open a Microsoft Management Console snap-in that involves security policies (such as Local Security Policy, Group Policy, or Domain Security Policy), the console may not open, and you may receive an error message similar to one of the following error messages:

I figured it out.  I needed to install Windows 2003 Adminpak and I was able to open the MMC now.
