The New York Times has a really useful guide/scorecard for the 2008 primary delegate count. Visit the New York Times Election Guide 2008 for valuable information on the primary race.
The DNC has prohibited any states other than Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina from holding their primary or caucus before February 5th. So the Democratic contest will get no delegates from it. Quite a few candidates are honoring the DNC request to not campaign in Michigan, except for Hillary Clinton and Dennis Kucinich.
The RNC has docked Michigan half their delegates, similar to the punishment Wyoming received for moving their primary up. There are 60 Republican delegates up for grabs, instead of their original 120.
One thing is certain: we need to figure out a way to solve this "front-loading" of primaries, or we'll continue to have these kinds of problems. If they don't fix this, eventually we'll have some primaries/caucuses occurring in mid-to-late December, nearly a YEAR before the general election.
Here's one possible solution.

Woo-hoo!!! the Giants beat Dallas!
