It was clear who sided with which candidate on Saturday in Washington after Democratic Party officials reached a decision on seating delegates from this winter’s Florida and Michigan primaries—cheers and angry jeers erupted when committee members explained that they would seat the delegates from both states with half-votes.

Proponents of full seating continuously interrupted the committee members as they explained their support of the compromise, then supporters of the deal shouted back.
“Shut up!” one woman shouted at another.
“You shut up!” the second woman shouted back.
Jim Roosevelt, co-chair of the committee, tried repeatedly to gavel it to order. “You are dishonoring your candidate when you disrupt the speakers,” he scolded.
Obama picked up a total of 32 delegates in Michigan, including superdelegates who have already committed, and 36 in Florida. Clinton picked up 38 in Michigan, including superdelegates, and 56.5 in Florida.
Obama’s total increased to 2,052, and Clinton had 1,877.5.
