|May 31, 2008--After a tense all-day meeting, enlivened by
interjections and applause from Clinton and Obama supporters in the
audience, the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee (RBC) resolved, for the
time being at least, challenges from Florida and Michigan Democrats
over the 100 percent penalties it had imposed on their delegations to
the national convention in Denver. The committee determined that
both states will send full delegations to the convention, but that the
delegates from the two states will get only a half vote each.
