The Michigan Dems Propose A Solution
Michigan Democrats have once again "agreed" to propose to the party's rules and bylaws committee a 69 to 59 delegate split in favor of Hillary Clinton.
It's not likely to fly. For one thing, the Clinton campaign has rejected similar proposals, although they certainly have less leverage now than they've had. For another, the RBC wants some flesh... a little skin... from Michigan and Florida.
What's a more likely scenario? A proposal that maintains Clinton's margin of victory but reduces the overall delegate haul by some meaningful amount. Obama's campaign has signaled a willingness to negotiate a deal like this, and I would not be surprised if some in his campaign believe that they can negotiate Clinton out of the race with a meaningful resolution to the Florida and Michigan problems.
