14. From what was said at our OCDP meeting Tuesday night,
I was under the impression that uncommitted delegates are just that -- uncommitted. It was stated that they can vote however they want at the convention. Of course, that's assuming they get to go to the convention at all.

Dave Woodward's opinion is that if there's a presumptive nominee going into the convention our delegates will be seated. If there isn't (e.g., if Hillary and Obama each have less than what is needed to get the nomination) and we're heading to a brokered convention, they won't. This was just his opinion. (Dave is the OCDP chair for those who may not know.)

I had really wanted to be a delegate, but I'm leaning toward not even trying now. What's the point if there's a reasonable chance that our delegation won't even go? They've now taken away our hotel rooms and if by some chance the delegation goes, they will be at the furthest possible hotel. I think I'll see more of the convention at home on TV. I'm better off waiting to run for delegate for a convention that we'll be seated at, even if it means going in 2012 with an incumbent and not a very exciting convention.
