Leahy to Hillary: Quit!

Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont became the first high-profile Democrat to finally tell Hillary she should withdraw from the race. Of course, Leahy has always been a independent voice, switching from Republican to Democrat after many years in the Senate.

From the AP: "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."

Leahy, of course, supports Obama.
