Obama wants "full vote" for MI, FL Delegates.

  • 7 Comments
  • by: ekean

In a letter today Barack Obama stated that he wants to see all of the delegates from both FL and MI seated with full voting rights.


“I believe party unity calls for the delegates from Florida and Michigan to be able to participate fully alongside the delegates from the other states and territories” he said in a letter to the co-chairs of the Democratic National Convention’s Credentials Committee.

More after the fold.


Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman said, “Today is a proud day for all of us who fought so hard to ensure Floridians votes are fully counted.”

She said Obama’s request proves “his commitment to uniting the party and ending the uncertainty surrounding the process.”

Clinton responded by reiterating her support for Florida and Michigan delegates having a full vote.

“The Democratic Party has always stood up for the principle of counting every person’s vote,” Clinton said in a statement today. Obama’s stance “is the right position for the Democratic Party and for the country.”

  1. in the long run it will help.  I think the 24 hour news cycle will be a little painful at first because he is kinda flipping on it, but in the end I think it is a good gesture of respect to Clinton and her supporters.  I do not think that there is any way she can win because of this.

        1. …the offer is much too late to do her any good now.  Clearly the offer is about Obama’s mending fences with Dems in those states…..he ain’t be gracious to Hillary.  Much to her chagrin, I’m sure, she’s got nothing to do with it.

            1. …when it could’ve mattered to her, he disputed her point and she lost.  Now that it’s of no use to her, Obama concedes her point?  Sounds like a poke in the eye to me.

              1. The delegates shouldn’t be seated since Obama’s name wasn’t on the ballot and/or he didn’t win. But now, he’s the one standing, so all delegates are fair game and should vote Obama’s way.
