Just watched a bit of the DNC meeting to decide the fate of the Michigan and Florida delegates. As far as I can see, the bottom line is that these weren’t fair contests. As such, the committee has the unenviable choice of sticking to their guns — allowing none of the votes and getting painted (unfairly) with the “you’re repeating 2000” brush — or making the best of a difficult situation by seating the delegates in a limited way. It’s likely that they’ll take the latter path, allocating each delegate half a vote and allocating Michigan’s delegates 60/40, counting each “uncommitted” citizen vote toward Obama. What other reasonable alternative is there? You can check out the live coverage live on C-SPAN.
