29. That's assuming there is a presumptive nominee going into the convention
Let's say Hillary and Obama each have 38% of the delegates going into the convention and Edwards has 24%. At that point, the uncommitted delegates can vote for whoever they want on the first ballot. As delegates get released on subsequent ballots after a deal of some sort has been reached, then they would vote for whoever they get released to.

The Oakland County Dems chair, Dave Woodward, thinks it's more likely our delegates will get seated if there is a presumptive nominee going into the convention than there is under the above scenario or something similar. That's just his opinion, but it makes sense. I, personally, am beginning to think that a similar scenario to the above is very possible and that our delegates will not be seated. But, that's just my opinion at this point.

I think we'll know a lot more after we see how things shake out on Super Duper Tuesday February 5.
