Bleeding Heartland: Someway, somehow, Michigan and Florida votes must be counted

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

As I've written before, I believe that some compromise must be found
to seat delegates from Michigan and Florida at the Democratic National
Convention. By "compromise," I don't mean the Obama campaign's
proposal to give both Clinton and Obama 50 percent of the delegates
from each state, which would disregard the will of the people. I mean
a compromise that would reflect how Democrats in those states voted. I
was open to a re-vote, but that idea has been killed in Florida and
appears less and less likely in Michigan. Obama supporter Gordon
Fischer celebrates the way they Obama campaign ran out the clock on
re-votes.
