THE PLANK MARCH 13, 2008

A Michigan/florida Solution?

Mark Halperin has the outlines of a plan
currently under discussion for seating the Michigan and Florida
delegations. Florida would be seated with half a vote each (netting
Clinton 19 delegates) and Michigan would be split 50-50. According to
Halperin, Clinton and the DNC would be happy with the proposal but
Obama might not be. Call me crazy, but isn't this a fantastic deal for
Obama? He puts the Florida and Michigan results behind him, and assures
that he goes into the convention with a 125 pledged delegate lead.
Moreover, there is no possible Clinton momentum from re-scheduled
primaries. What am I missing?
