Compromise on Michigan and Florida vote?

Mark Halpertin of Time's The Page blog received a document that the Michigan Dems are circulating which proposes this compromise on the Michigan and Florida delegations: "Michigan’s 156 delegates would be split 50-50 between Clinton and Obama. Florida’s existing delegates would be seated at the Denver convention—but with half a vote each. That would give Clinton a net gain of about 19 elected delegates.

"The two states’ superdelegates would then be able to vote in Denver, likely netting Clinton a few more delegates." So she would come out somewhat ahead while Obama would avoid possibly a pair of defeats in any re-done primaries....I don't know why Clinton would go for this since she needs bigger edge in delegates and major mojo from primary wins...
