US Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean has said he would like the party’s presidential nominating contest decided by 1 July to avoid bitter in-fighting.
Mr. Dean told US network ABC he did not want rivalry between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to “degenerate into a big fight at the convention” in August. Mr. Obama has begun a six-day tour of Pennsylvania, which votes on 22 April.
Meanwhile the Republican contender John McCain has aired his first advert aimed at November’s general election. The Arizona senator is effectively guaranteed to pick up his party’s nomination to run for president at the Republican National Convention in September.
In the Democratic contest, Senator Obama is ahead of Senator Clinton in terms of the number of delegates won in the party’s primary elections. But the battle for the presidential nomination seems set to continue all the way to the party’s national convention in late August.
And he’s not the only one; I think everybody had enough of all the dirt thrown around. Is about time Hillary and Obama to wrap out and decide who of the them will be the next …Vice-President of the US.
