WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

With reports that the Obama campaign is now moving their staff out of Michigan, (after McCain pulled out a couple of weeks ago), why did we spend all that time worrying about the effect of Michigan's delegate issues on the fall election?

And where are we now?

Obama 54, McCain 38.
