PRIMARY SCRAMBLE
(2008-06-02)
(wgvu) - BARACK OBAMA'S ADVISERS ARE CONFIDENTLY
PREDICTING HE'D HAVE THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION IN HAND
AS EARLY AS THIS WEEK.
A PARTY COMMITTEE HAS VOTED TO GIVE EACH MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA
DELEGATE A HALF VOTE AT THE NATIONAL CONVENTION.
THE COMPROMISE DID NO HARM TO OBAMA'S NEAR LOCK ON THE
NOMINATION, BUT PROMPTED NEW THREATS FROM HILLARY CLINTON'S CAMP TO
CARRY THE FIGHT TO THE AUGUST CONVENTION. CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN
OBJECTED TO THE COMPROMISE ON MICHIGAN'S DELEGATES.
OBAMA SPOKESMAN ROBERT GIBBS ON ABC'S "THIS WEEK" DID NOT RULE
OUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT OBAMA WILL SEAT THE MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA
DELEGATIONS AT FULL STRENGTH IF HE IS THE NOMINEE.
