My Solution to the Democrat's Delegate Allocation

Everyone expects the rules committee to just give the Florida and Michigan delegates 1/2 vote each, and to assign the uncommitted Michigan delegates to Obama.

The Clinton campaign decries the reduction of the voters' voice.

The DNC obviously needs to punish the states that jumped the gun.

Here's my completely politically unacceptable solution:
Give the nominated delegates a full vote, but deny all Super Delegates from those states.
Since Super Delegates are party insiders, this would definitely bring the pain, and let those folks personally know that there are consequences for breaking the rules.

The outcome would largely the same, and every cast vote would count.

But of course, those insiders would scream bloody murder, so that won't happen.
