Obama Advisers Foresee a Delegate Draw With Clinton

More evidence that we may have a superdelegate superdebacle. The article does offer an interesting solution to the Michigan/Florida problem:

Under the current rules, there are only two ways Michigan and Florida could get convention delegates. The states could resubmit a selection plan that is consistent with DNC rules. That could include holding another primary or a party-run caucus, for example.

As Joe has already suggested, just hold two caucuses. Otherwise, the Superdelegates may be picking our nominee instead of us. And I don’t care how long it’s been in the rules, no one realized this was the case, and I suspect there’s going to be a civil war if the superdelegates pick the nominee who isn’t ahead in the “real” delegate count. And wouldn’t that be a great way to hand John McCain the presidency.
