George McGovern backs Obama, Urges Clinto to Quit

From the Washington Post:
Former Sen. George McGovern, an early supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, urged her to drop out of the Democratic presidential race and endorsed her rival, Barack Obama. After watching the returns from the North Carolina and Indiana primaries Tuesday night, McGovern said Wednesday it's virtually impossible for Clinton to win the nomination. The 1972 Democratic presidential nominee said he had a call in to former President Clinton to tell him of the decision, adding that he remains close friends with the Clintons.

He's not a superdelegate, but the 85-year-old former Presidential
nominee expresses the general consensus that it's time to put the bickering
behind and unite the Democratic Party.

Realism rules.
