A Bold Idea

With last night's victory, Senator Clinton now claims two states—Florida and Michigan—whom the DNC has stripped of delegates due to voting before February 5th. She won both handedly; in the case of Michigan, she was the only viable candidate to not withdraw from the ballot in placation to New Hampshire (which she won anyhow).

My thought: What if the Senator knows that the DNC will capitulate and give Florida and Michigan's delegates a seat at the convention?

Indeed, what if her campaign is actively pushing for this outcome with the DNC, and secretly worked to ensure Clinton's victory in Florida and Michigan?

With her forecasted-win in California, Florida's delegates, and her believed-lock on the superdelegates, that is a ball game.
