Tidbit 2

The RBC (Rules and Bylaws Committee) of the DNC voted to strip Florida and Michigan of its delegates. It is comprised of many Clinton supporters. The two co-chairs served in various positions in the Clinton Administration. Harold Ickes is a current campaign advisor. 11 of the 30 members of the RBC are pledged superdelegates of Hillary Clinton (with asteriks below). Most RBC members remain uncommitted. Only 2 are pledged to Obama (Martha Fuller Clark and Everett Ward). It is pretty obvious that Hillary Clinton supported stripping Michigan and Florida of its delegates. She had a big lead in the polls last fall (the time of the vote) and was happy to have the race shortened by eliminating two of the largest post super-tuesday contests.
