Democrats Deciding Fate of Nomination Today?

Today is a big day for Sens. Obama and Clinton. The DNC Rules Committee is behind closed doors deciding the fate of the Florida and Michigan delegates. You might remember that both of those states decided to go against party rules and have their primaries earlier than allowed; their punishment was the stripping of their delegates at the conventions later this summer.

Of course, now that we have a horse race, each and every vote is precious and Sen. Clinton is particularly interested in having the FL and MI votes count in order to boost her overall delegate count and to raise the number of votes needed to win the nomination.

Unfortunately, the Rules Committee is in a no-win situation. There is no outcome that will make everyone happy, but maybe they can give the people in those two states a voice in the process.
