They're BAAAACK!

INSIDE THE RULES AND BYLAWS COMMITTEE MEETING -- After a "lunch" break that went nearly two hours longer than expected, the 28 members of the Rules and Bylaws Committee are making their way back into the room at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.

The consensus, according to several informed sources, was that a deal has been reached on seating the Florida delegation and that negotiations were continuing over Michigan.

Those same sources made clear the RBC felt strongly that they should attempt to settle the disputes in both states today rather than let either or both state swing in the wind for the foreseeable future.

We should know how it all turned out soon -- hopefully.

Sidenote: Donna Brazile, one of the most high profile members of the RBC was greeted with a hero's welcome upon her return to the room.

Michigan and Florida had rules in the beginning and they were broken.

What else is the point of all this? They should of done a redo of the

primaries. This is unfair to Obama and Clinton when you look at it. I

dont understand the American people anymore. Everyone forgets what the

rules were in the beginning and then want to change everything for the

advantage of their candidate. So for all the people crying on TV and so

mad because of this decision, you pushed for this to happen by crying

like babies and forcing a change of a RULE. Why try and push for our

candidates to have a fair vote and then leave out one one a ballad? Does

that sound right? Come on, BE FAIR USA.. That is not even democratic

what you pushed for. I wish people would analyze a situation for a fair

decision not for the advantage of what they want out of the outcome. We

are loosing a battle here in our country and this proves my theroy that

there will never be a Great America only if we continue to over look

rules like the constitution, decloration of Independence and everything

else we make ammendments to for the advancement of our own agenda. When

will it stop?

Why is Ickes lecturing about "rules", when the issue at stake here is whether or not the Clinton campaign wants to respect the rules of the DNC?

The Clintons don't care about "600,000 voters", they care about reclaiming their throne.

Chris Cilizza, you deserve a raise for how hard you've worked to tell us what's going on. Your posts are insightful, not biased and instantaneous.

Thank you.
