Argument: Seating Michigan and Florida delegates in 2008 gives a voice to voters there
- Mara Liasson. "Forfeited Delegates May Get Second Look". Watching Washington, NPR. February 20, 2008 - "The day before the Florida, primary she told her supporters, 'I want the voters in Florida to know that I hear them.'
- 'Hundreds of thousands of Floridians have already voted, so clearly they are taking this seriously, and they believe their voices are going to be heard and should be counted, and I agree with them,'"
- Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP, thinks it is a civil rights violation not to seat the the delegates of Florida and Michigan. The grounds of this violation obviously being that it violates the right of citizens to vote.
