I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Florida Compromise Reached, Hillary Nets 19 Pledged Delegates

It looks like the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee has gotten half it’s job done:

Jon Ausman, the puckish and bemused Florida DNC member who’s trying to get the Florida delegation seated, is bringing the house down with his challenge — to the extent that any presentation before Rules and Bylaws can bring the house down, of course.

He just wrapped things up, and his final word is this: Seating half the delegates is “acceptable to the challenger.”

That’s shaping up more and more as the likely outcome. The Huffington Post‘s Sam Stein cites two sources saying that a deal has already been reached to seat the delegation with each member having half a vote — which would give Hillary a net gain of 19 delegates.

Now, they just have to solve the problem that is Michigan and they can go home.
