Democrats to Decide Rules for Michigan, Florida Delegates There will be standing room only for tomorrow's meeting of a group even political junkies never heard of before, the Democrats' Rules and Bylaws Committee. Thirty party insiders will try to compromise on disputed delegates from two states that will matter greatly in the general election. There will be saturation news coverage as Hillary Clinton , Barack Obama and the States of Michigan and Florida make their cases during the morning. Deliberations will start in the afternoon. But the big question is whether the nomination will finally be resolved. Clinton supporters plan demonstrations outside; Obama wants his people to cool it. We hear arguments from both sides on the latest event to make this a campaign unprecedented in political history.
