John Deeth Blog: The last word on Florida and Michigan: Full seating

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The rules? Never mind. The DNC's credentials connittee made it
official yesterday: The two states that broke the rules on the
nomination calendar and caused delegate count turmoil until days
before the primaries ended, Florida and Michigan, will get full
seating and full votes at this week's convention. Michigan Senator
Carl Levin, Public Enemy Number One of the Iowa caucuses, declared
victory. "We had the guts to take the system on, and we made progress
this year," he said. Levin has made it clear that in his mind,
"reform" means "Iowa and New Hampshire don't go first anymore." The
DNC is organizing a calender reform commission headed by Michigan's
Debbie Dingell, another caucus hater. "There's a principle at stake,
and we are committed to that principle," said Dingell.
