Detroit News: Clinton amassing extra Michigan delegates

I guess this is part of the behind-the-scenes "Clinton Strategy". Sounds like Obama's team let this get away from them. Michigan delegation WILL be seated IMO but not sure if they will have full voting rights. Not sure how much of this is "opinion" by the writer and how much is actual fact. But the Michigan state party establishment has been working pretty hard for Clinton's benefit so could be true. Read the full article at the link.


"If you punched your ballot for "uncommitted" in Michigan's Jan. 15 Democratic presidential primary to back Barack Obama, your vote might have essentially gone to Hillary Clinton anyway.

While all eyes were locked on Pennsylvania for the last six weeks, Clinton was quietly amassing delegates in the Wolverine State. And she was rewarded this past weekend with a significant victory at the district conventions.

This development naturally has been overshadowed by her big win Tuesday night in Pennsylvania. But the race for the Democratic nomination wasn't decided then and won't be by the remaining contests -- not North Carolina, Indiana or even Guam -- because the real fight is over delegates. And Michigan remains a key battleground.

On Aug. 25, Clinton will march into the national convention in Denver stronger than most people realize, thanks to her aggressive ground game in Michigan."
