You cut the pizza, and I'll choose which slice you get

A day before the Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws Committee is set to determine how to seat the delegations of Florida and Michigan, the Clinton campaign's chief lawyer said the committee is compelled to seat both delegations fully and not award Sen. Barack Obama any delegates from Michigan. Link.

You have to wonder, would Clinton's campaign lawyer be insisting Michigan and Florida's delegates should be counted if it meant Hillary wouldn't get the nomination?

Michigan and Florida were told their votes wouldn't count before they moved their primary dates, but they did it anyway, so guess what? Their votes shouldn't count. Period. When broken, rules are designed to have consequences or there's no point in having rules at all.

Not to mention that if Obama knew the DNC might rescind back the rules, he wouldn't have taken his name off the ticket in Michigan. So if the DNC goes back on their word, how is that fair in any way to Obama?
