A UW expert thinks Democrats could be in big trouble if the Obama-Clinton fight drags on.
There's no indication when the battle for the Democratic nomination between Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will end. Some are even questioning if it will be settled before the party's convention in August. If that happens, UW-Madison political scientist Charles Franklin says that would be very divisive and damaging for the party.
However, Franklin says if Hillary is unable to catch up with Obama's delegate count during the next few primaries, she could give up by June. Either way, he says waiting too long to pick a nominee could hurt that candidate's chances in competing against the Republican nominee.
