DENVER (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama are working on a deal to give her some votes in the roll call for the Democratic nomination.
Party officials say under the proposal, delegates would be able to vote for either Obama or Clinton at the start of the state-by-state vote for the nomination on Wednesday.
But the voting would be cut off after a couple of states, perhaps ending with Clinton's home state of New York. At that point, Clinton herself would call for a unanimous backing for Obama from the convention floor.
Clinton has said she has told her delegates that she'll vote for Obama, but she won't tell them how to vote.
Clinton will give a prime-time convention speech tomorrow night. On Wednesday she's slated to release her delegates and urge them to vote for Obama.
