Hmmm…this is getting interesting. First Dr. Dean says the primary season has to be over by July 1st. Now, we have a little ditty from Sen. Patrick Leahy.
Sen. Patrick Leahy is suggesting that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton abandon her White House run.
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and six-term Vermont lawmaker said there is no way that Clinton is going to win enough pledged delegates to get the nomination. Leahy told Vermont Public Radio, in a show that aired Thursday, that Clinton ought to withdraw and should be backing Sen. Barack Obama. But Leahy said that’s obviously a decision only Clinton can make.
“Senator Clinton has every right, but not a very good reason, to remain a candidate for as long as she wants to. As far as the delegate count and the interests of a Democratic victory in November go, there is not a very good reason for drawing this out. But as I have said before, that is a decision that only she can make,” Leahy said in the statement.
Are we witnessing the beginning of a multi-Senator line-up behind Obama? What with the Casey endorsement today, and now Leahy’s public statements, could this be the start of a landslide of Democrats who pressure Hillary to quit?
