The other night as the results of the latest primaries in Ohio and Texas, Vermont and Rhode Island were being discussed at MSNBC someone, probably Keith Olbermann, but perhaps Tom Brokaw, noted that the Democrats do not now have a "Barry Goldwater" person to walk down to Hillary Clinton Headquarters and tell her to quit as Barry did to Dick Nixon. It may be true, but we do have you three leaders of our party and we, a majority of the rank and file members of our Democratic Party, believe it is time to "get on with it."

Our country has been assailed, bludgeoned, insulted, raped, and humiliated by the Cheney and Bushite Republicans and we must not let our golden chance to rid ourselves and our country of these people go aglimmering because of the intransigent ego of the Clintons. The arithmetic of the situation is plain enough. Hillary cannot possibly win the nomination by any democratic means.

We are asking you to step forward as a group, putting aside each of your personal ambitions, to state publicly that you believe the time has come to rally around the campaign of Senator Barack Obama to defeat the Republicans utterly and completely. This is not the time or place to debate the minute differences between the candidates; it is the time to recognize that one of them has a commanding lead and the other seems to be willing to do and say anything to tear him down. We are proud of the high road Senator Obama has taken and we are ashamed of the low road that Senator Clinton has recently adopted as her own.

Stand up Al, John and Bill, and bring this dangerous foolishness to an end.
