Florida and Michigan

There seems to be 3 issues getting all confused with respect to the FL and MI delegates. One question is whether some minor muckety mucks from places called "Florida" and "Michigan" get to go to the party in Denver. A second question is how many of those will be attached to Clinton and how many to Obama. A third is whether "the will of the voters" will somehow be reflected in #2.

Obviously the first issue can be solved very easily, by letting them come to the party without having them impact the election at all. The third is pretty much hopeless in Michigan and still bad, though less bad, in Florida. The second can be addressed with some sort of compromise, though not a compromise likely to be agreeable to both sides. But any sort of compromise also means that the 3rd question is pretty much not a concern.
