Let the election play out

Prior to the Ohio and Texas primaries, columnist Robert Novak speculated about the need for someone to "bell" Hillary Clinton and urge her to pull out of the race if she did not decisively win in the two states.

Now, that seems laughable. Why should a viable candidate ever be required to concede when the chance for a comeback is still possible. And why should either candidate rob the voters of late primary states from a legitimate role in the election.

The way things are going, every state, with the possible exceptions of Michigan and Florida, is getting a voice in the Democratic nominating process. That's the way it should be. Let the process work the way it is designed.
