What's Fair?

I was watching the DNC meeting today about seating Fl and Mi votes when Rep. Robert Wexler of Boca Raton appeared on behalf of Barack Obama. Rep. Wexler did an excellent job of representing Mr. Obama. I think he made the case for allowing the Florida delegation to be seated at half-strength at the party's August convention in Denver.
He presented that as a "major concession" by Obama because that would mean a delegate pickup for Ms Clinton who won a primary that the party had ruled would not count for anything. Of course Clinton want the seating of a full Florida delegation which would give her even more delegates. Some people wanted to talk about the concept of "fair reflection." Hillary want it all.
