At Last, It's Over

News Item: Compromise reached on Michigan/Florida delegates.

Hillary really has no justification for remaining in the race now. And you can tell how happy her supporters are about it (according to TNR):

Howard Dean may hope that the "healing will begin today," but two blocks away from the northwest Washington Marriott where the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee is meeting right now to try to figure out Florida and Michigan, the Hillary protesters are occupying an utterly alternate (and healing-free) universe: a universe in which one of the big lawn rally's speakers yells that the Democratic Party no longer is in the business of "promoting equality and fairness for all"; in which a Hillary supporter with two poodles shouts, "Howard Dean is a leftist freak!"; in which a man exhibits a sign that reads "At least slaves were counted as 3/5ths a Citizen" and shows Dean whipping handcuffed people; and in which Larry Sinclair, the Minnesota man who took to YouTube to allege that Barack Obama had oral sex with him in the back of a limousine in 1999, is one of the belles of the ball.
Funny that that "gay sex" rumor never got much traction. If not even Fox News or Drudge takes the guy seriously, chances are there's nothing to it and the guy's a nut.

Just curious how all of the non-committed from Michigan can be considered Obama voters if Edwards was still in the race at the time?

Just keep telling yourself it's over, Steve. It's going to be a floor fight at the convention and it's going to be ugly and explosive.
