Can't win, redefine winning

From the WashTimes banners "Clinton campaign retools delegate math": "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign yesterday tried to redefine the delegate math for securing the Democratic presidential nomination, signaling its willingness to wage a divisive battle with front-runner Sen. Barack Obama through the summer. ... Top Clinton aides said the nominee must win based on a tally that includes delegates from Florida and Michigan, which held January primaries that were disqualified by party rules. ..."The campaign's 'Delegate Hub' website identifies 2,208 as the total delegates needed to be nominated, or 183 more than the threshold of 2,025 set by the Democratic National Committee's rules. 'That's what we believe is the standard for deciding this - who has the majority of the total delegates including Michigan and Florida to decide the nomination,' said Clinton strategist Geoff Garin."
