Florida and Michigan have full voting-rights secured

Really. That about says it all.

Democratic delegates from Michigan and Florida were awarded full voting rights at the national convention Sunday, despite holding early primaries against party rules.

The convention credentials committee voted unanimously to restore the voting privileges at the behest of Barack Obama, the party’s presumptive nominee for president. The states were initially stripped of delegates for holding primaries before Feb. 5. The party’s rules committee restored the delegates in May, but gave them only half votes.

    They didn’t get to participate in the election, but they’re invited to the coronation?  I’m not sure they’ll be all that thrilled.
