Leahy to Clinton -- Get out of the race already

Of course this comes out a day after Hillary supporters told Nancy Pelosi to stay out of the race, so consider Patrick Leahy's statement a return salvo over their bow:

Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vermont, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a high-profile supporter of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, has called for Obama's opponent to drop out of the race.

an interview on Vermont Public Radio, said "There is no way that Senator Clinton is going to win enough delegates to get the nomination. She ought to withdraw and she ought to be backing Senator Obama. Now, obviously that's a decision that only she can make frankly I feel that she would have a tremendous career in the Senate."

Leahy said he was fretting about the impact of the protracted Democratic race.

"I am very concerned," he said. "John McCain, who has been making one gaffe after another, is getting a free ride on it because Senator Obama and Senator Clinton have to fight with each other. I think that her criticism is hurting him more than anything John McCain has said. I think that's unfortunate."

Gee, Pat, is it unfortunate because voters are seeing the truth? The truth that neither Obama or Hillary are seen as a good choice based on their positions on Iraq, taxes, the economy, and national health care? Or is he just ticked that the bloodletting going on between the two stooges is more newsworthy than McCain is? He claims that McCain has made "one gaffe after another," yet he doesn't cite them, and the media hasn't been reporting on them. One would think that if McCain may a serious misstep, the MSM would smell blood in the water, and go on an all-out feeding frenzy. But they haven't, so obviously McCain's gaffes aren't as big as Leahy alludes them to be.

Personally, I think this is just a disgruntled Obama supporter who wanted to get his name in the spotlight for a second, coming out to complain that Hillary won't go quietly into the night. See, when the democrats interfere with our choices for a candidate, it's cool. But when we turn the tables on them, and use the same tactics to keep this primary fight alive, they cry foul.

We've accepted your choice. We're lining up behind McCain. Time for Pat and company to shut up and accept who is chosen on their side. Besides, both are adults. Both knew what they were getting into. Let them fight it out. After all, whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, right Pat?
