If Michigan’s Democratic Delegates Get Seated…

If the DNC folds in its fight with Michigan, then based on last night’s results, then 87 (or thereabouts, depending on how they deal with fractions of a percent) delegates will go to Hillary, 63 will be uncommitted, and 6 will go to Kucinich.

The Washington Post buries the results of the Democratic primary in a three paragraph story at the bottom of page A7. Headline: 44 Percent Vote Against Clinton.
UPDATE: A good line from Jen Rubin: “Let’s hope that Uncommitted guy doesn’t win– he/she/it (?) is going to be tough to beat and can apparently turn out the vote in the snow without spending any money on ads.”
