This is a step in the right direction, and I'm glad to see it. From the Associated Press:

Barack Obama's surging presidential campaign announced Monday that he will visit politically neglected Florida and Michigan, as he focuses on a general election strategy with his primary race winding down.

It will be Obama's first time in either state since signing a pledge nine months ago not to campaign in the two states that violated national party rules with early primaries. Obama will have to build relationships in the two critical general election battlegrounds if he wins the Democratic nomination.

It's great that the Obama team recognizes they have two big problems, and now that Obama's all but inevitable, it would also be smart for them to take a more reconciliatory stand on seating the delegates.
