Florida Flashback

When the Democratic National Committee decided to punish Florida and Michigan in September for moving up their primaries, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards had all signed pledges not to campaign in those states (although fundraising trips were allowed). However, now the Clinton campaign is making overtures to those states and their delegates saying that the delegates should be counted and seated at the convention.

It could be successfully argued that Sen. Clinton is setting up a potential fracas in Denver should the party's nominee be in question when the convention rolls around.

As in the past, Florida could find itself in the center of a nasty controversy.
