The closer this race for president gets, the more the details matter. Unfortunately, the more I read about those details the more confused I get. There are delegates and superdelegates and somehow Hillary Clinton won more support in Nevada, but in the end Barack Obama might actually win more delegates. But we don't know yet. Rudy Giuliani skipped most of the early states, and put almost everything on Florida's primary tomorrow... Again, due to their delegates. But, the Democrats aren't campaigning (not officially, anyway) in the Sunshine State, because they were stripped of their delegates... But now there's a push to give them back, along with Michigan's Democratic delegates.

Huh?

Exactly.

We've got questions, you've got questions... We've also got a good Rolodex. We'll talk with campaign strategists (Republican and Democratic) about how to make sense of all of this. Send us your questions here.
