Argument: The candidates never agreed to not seat Michigan and Florida delegates
- Evan Smith. "Hillary: Seat Michigan, Florida Delegates". Texas Monthly. February 22, 2008 - "There’s been a lot of talk about what your campaign would do should it get to the convention. Would you commit today to honoring the agreement made earlier not to seat the Michigan and Florida delegations?
- [Hilary Clinton:] Let’s talk about the agreement. The only agreement I entered into was not to campaign in Michigan and Florida. It had nothing to do with not seating the delegates. I think that’s an important distinction. I did not campaign--"
- The press seems to have missed the distinction if that’s the case. The talk is that you agreed not to seat the delegation.
- [Hilary Clinton:] That’s not the case at all. I signed an agreement not to campaign in Michigan and Florida. Now, the DNC made the determination that they would not seat the delegates, but I was not party to that.
