Michigan Democrats are in a bind.

They wanted all eyes on Michigan by moving the presidential primary to Jan. 15 -- which turned out to be a bust, since only Sen. Hillary Clinton stayed on the ballot among the contenders. The national committee heaped on humiliation by stripping the state of delegates for breaking party rules.

Everyone from Sen. Carl Levin to Democratic chairman Mark Brewer assumed the party would get the delegates back in a goodwill gesture by the August convention.

Well, the eyes are back on Michigan -- but not for the reasons they wanted.

The historic contest between Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama is closer than most imagined. And if the disputed delegation is seated in a deadlocked convention, Michigan's pseudo-primary could be the tipping point for either contender.

The article fleshes out this situation quite well.
