Senator Patrick Leahy, who has endorsed fellow Senator Barack Obama, called for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to drop out of the presidential race in a radio interview today.

Talking on Vermont Public Radio, Mr. Leahy 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.”

Senator Clinton obviously displays no inclination to quit the race. In interviews just yesterday, she mentioned there could even be a “credentials fight” at the Democratic convention in August. And her campaign has consistently promoted the notion that she’s the favorite among many of the big states, evidenced currently by her popularity in Pennsylvania with its primary on April 22.
