cnn: Obama senior adviser David Axelrod says the Illinois senator’s campaign is “open to compromise” and willing to cede Hillary Clinton the advantage in talks over the seating of the Florida and Michigan delegations at the Democratic National Convention this summer.
"We are willing to go more than half way. We're willing to work to make sure that we can achieve a compromise," Axelrod tells National Public Radio’s Michele Norris in a Wednesday evening interview. "And I guess the question is: is Senator Clinton's campaign willing to do the same?"
Clinton spent Wednesday in Florida highlighting her push for full delegations from both states to be seated in accordance with their January votes, which were not sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee because of the early primary dates. Her campaign has charged the Obama team with blocking a compromise on the issue – a claim that campaign has denied.

Obama's Name Didn't Appear
on the michigan ballot and obama barely campaigned in florida but hillary has her angry face on and is not letting up. that's just nasty, completely unfair. the obama camp, which has always contended that those two states delegates would be seated, says it's willing to compromise with hillary. but that probably won't be enough for her. she's awfully ungracious.
