Florida has a plan

More

This just in from CNN:

Two Florida state senators presented a plan Wednesday to seat the state's delegates at the Democratic National Convention, hoping that Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will embrace their compromise.

Florida Senate Democratic Leader Steven Geller and Sen. Jeremy Ring outlined a proposal to seat all the delegates at the convention in August. The plan recommends seating half of Florida's 210 delegates based on the results of the January 29 primary. The remaining delegates could be allocated in a number of ways, including evenly, proportionally based on the national popular vote (excluding Florida and Michigan) or proportionally based on the total national delegate count, also excluding Florida and Michigan. "I invite the campaigns to endorse our compromise to ensure victory in November," Ring said.

This was the part that caught my eye:

"There is no do-over, no mail-in ballots, no complicated math. Just the basic process of American democracy is in play here."

That's all right, then.
