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.
