More on the Democrat Nightmare Scenario: Michigan and Florida

As a helpful reader pointed out, there is more to the possible Democrat Nightmare Scenario than just super-delegates. There’s the question of whether and how to seat delegations from Michigan and Florida at the Democrat National Convention.

The two states held their primaries earlier than party rules allowed, so the party said, "No delegates for you!" But now that Hillary Clinton needs all the delegates she can get, she wants those two delegations seated. Here’s one good summary of the situation.

The party is already divided over this. One interesting division: the NAACP wants the delegations seated; Al Sharpton does not.

But again, Hillary needs to finish well for the Nightmare Scenario to be much of a possibility. It seems even the Daily Kos and I agree on that.
