DENVER--Here's how the symbolic dance is going to work. According to Obama spokesman Bill Burton, a deal was reached for Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Rodham Clinton to all be nominated on Wednesday on the convention floor. The deal was cut Monday night between Obama chief delegate counter Jeff Berman and Clinton advisor Craig Smith. Joint petitions will be circulated; each needs just 300 signatures.
Most likely there won't be a whole roll call: Illinois and New York may get to vote--to give
Clinton her due from her adopted state, and, as a bridge to Obama, her native state of Illinois.
