Michigan Democratic Do-Over Caucus Very Likely, Florida May Re-Vote Via Mail

This isn't going to make Gov. Granholm or Senator Clinton happy at all. A caucus favors Obama, and Clinton was hoping for just seating the delegates she already won in an unfair primary.


A member of the DNC's Rules And Bylaws Committee--the committee that stripped Florida and Michigan of its delegates for moving their primaries before February 5th--told me that Michigan plans to get out of its uncounted delegate problem by announcing a new caucus in the next few days.
"They want to play. They know how to do caucuses," the DNC source said. "That was their plan all along, before they got cute with the primary."
Michigan Democrats had originally planned on caucuses after the legally permissible Feb. 5 date, but then went along with top elected Democrats, including Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who pushed for an early primary.
UPDATE: Fla. Dems weigh redoing presidential primary by mail

Everyone wants back in the game!!!
WASHINGTON -- With pressure to resolve the Florida Democratic primary's renegade status intensifying, the state party is looking at the possibility of giving voters a chance to cast a second ballot in the presidential primary -- by mail.
The party has all but ruled out as too costly holding an election in which voters would go to the polls, but is looking at a mail-in contest that could give Florida Democrats a say in the presidential nominating contest.
