17. Look at the footnotes.
The "journalists" they cite are David Brooks and Michael Barone. :puke:

Then there's this:

In contrast, the party's Delegate Selection Plan states that delegates are to be allocated in a manner similar to other state caucuses.

From their plan (link through footnotes):

The Delegate Selection Plan for Puerto Rico provides for its pledged delegates to be allocated proportionally to presidential preferences based on Senatorial District Caucuses on June 7, 2008.

District-level delegates and alternates will be selected by Senate District Electors in Senate District Caucuses at the Puerto Rico Democratic Assembly on June 21, 2008. Puerto Rico's Democratic Assembly, an equivalent of a State Convention, will select the unpledged add-on delegate, pledged party leader and elected official delegates and at-large delegates and alternate on June 21, 2008. In addition, Puerto Rico's delegation includes unpledged delegates.

The delegation will select the standing committee members and the Delegation Chair at a meeting following the Puerto Rico Democratic Assembly on June 21, 2008. The State Chair will name Puerto Rico's Convention Pages at that time.
