    Hopefully more Clinton backers come out with statements like this...


    Clinton backer: Trailing candidate should drop out by June 3

    Posted: 12:00 PM ET

    (CNN) -- A prominent backer of Hillary Clinton's White House bid said
    Tuesday whichever Democratic candidate is trailing after the last
    round of primaries should immediately drop out.

    In an interview with the Associated Press, Rep. Barney Frank said the
    Democratic race should not continue past the last two primaries on
    June 3 and said one of the candidates should even consider getting out
    "sooner" if it seems inconceivable he or she could win the nomination.

    Clinton currently trails Obama by 171 pledged delegates in the most
    recent CNN count. It remains virtually impossible for the New York
    senator to close that gap, even if she wins the remaining primaries by
    large margins. But neither candidate can amass the necessary 2,025
    delegates needed to capture the nomination without the support of
    superdelegates, leaving the ultimate decision in the hands of those
    elected officials and party leaders.

    It also remains unlikely Clinton can catch Obama in the popular vote,
    even if the results of the disputed primaries in Florida and Michigan
    are factored in.

    I'll bet she doesn't.

    She's not going to give up on her dream that easily. This was supposed to be her year, remember?
