11. Don't know how long you've followed politcs but ...
If the convention starts without a clear nominee that will be very unusual. In that case I believe it is very unlikely that the michigan delegates will be allowed to vote on the first ballot and perhaps will be completely excluded. What is likely to happen is that the winner will be obvious by the time the convention starts and thus they will seat the Michigan delegates in an attempt to placate pissed off people like me.

If the convention starts as undecided (highly unlikely given modern politics) then the rule fighting will be vicious. It would be fun show but Michigan will come up on the short side of it all and, effectively, already has.

Anyway, I hope you succeed in "uncommitted". I hope Hillary is prevented as many unfair delegates as possible. I agree with Senator Riegle. The Clintons have attempted to cheat to a sleezy win in Michigan. I partially blame Granholm.
