It's not over until it's over, but that could be real soon for one Democratic presidential candidate.
Saying she's not ready to give up just yet, Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton says this nomination process for a Democratic nominee has been long and impressive. She admits, though, it can't go on much longer.
"I suspect that within a week to ten days we will have a nominee and we will carry forward to an exciting convention. And a Democrat will become president."
Lawton — Co-Chair of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's Wisconsin campaign effort — says the race to the White House started with an unprecedented diverse group of candidates, making it difficult to winnow it down to just one. Lawton says, win or lose, Hillary has made an impact. Women around the world, young and old, can now imagine themselves in a leadership position because of Hillary's fight.
"Senator Clinton's candidacy has been inspirational to women around the world; She has conducted herself with great dignity; She has shown us that women are every bit as tough as men … as bright; she's brought tremendous experience to the table in this."
Clinton's opponent Senator Barack Obama is ready to claim victory … just 46 delegates away from the 2,118 delegates needed to win the party nomination. Hillary needs 202. Montana and South Dakota are the last two states in the nation to have their primaries. There are 31 delegates up for grabs, not enough for either candidate to reach the finish line. The nomination is in the hands of some 200 uncommitted superdelegates.
