In the irony of ironies, Democratic votes from Florida and Michigan may count, after all ...

To recap, Florida and Michigan wanted a bigger bite of the nomination process and moved up their primaries, defying (the) national party ... The Democratic National Committee ... stripped both states of all delegates to the national convention ...

With the excruciatingly close Barack Obama-Hillary Clinton race, those ... delegates really matter ... Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., would have the states hold mail-in-only, do-over votes.

But since elections cost money, who pays?

Our view? Unless the DNC wants to cede two battleground states to Republican nominee John McCain ... pony up. ...

This fight may reach the floor at (the) national convention in Denver, at a time when the party will want unity, not division, to be the main storyline.

Neither state government is likely to come up with the money for new elections. ...

Framed that way, a few million DNC-raised bucks seem like a small price to pay.
