Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean speaks during a taping of ‘Meet the Press’ in Washington, April 27, 2008. Dean appeared on the show to speak about the 2008 presidential race and the ongoing battle for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Howard Dean will enforce this decree – GET OUT.

Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean said Monday that either Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Obama must drop out of the Democratic presidential race after the June primaries in order to unify the party by the convention and win the election in November.

But Dean didn’t say which candidate should drop out, only that it should happen after primary voters have been to the polls.

“We want the voters to have their say. That’s over on June 3,” Dean said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Dean also said that while the party rules say Democratic superdelegates can wait until the party’s August 25 convention to make up their minds, that would be too late to unify the party and defeat the presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain.

“We really can’t have a divided convention. If we do it’s going to be very hard to heal the party afterwards,” Dean said. “So we’ll know who the nominee is and that’ll give us an extra 2 1/2 months to get our party together, heal the wounds of having a very closely divided race and take on Senator McCain.”

Dean said he won’t have to tell either Clinton or Obama when it’s time to leave the race.

“Either of these candidates, if it’s time for them to go, they’ll know it and they will go,” Dean said. “They don’t need any pushing from me. You know when to get in and you know when to get out. That’s just part of the deal.”

When Hillary wins Indiana, it will only harden her resolve to take the Michigan/Florida debacles to the Democrat Convention. And, Obama WILL NEVER agree to a withdrawal having won the most pledged delegates.

In a minute Flap will look at the latest Indiana polls – favorable to Hillary.

Stay tuned……

    I feel Obama should get out. After reading about the unscupulous people he is affiliated with I fear these people will involve themselves somehow into his life if he is President. For the all the money he received for campaign, I am sure he owes a lot of favors. Rev. Wright is never going to go away and will be a detriment to Obama always, because he seems to relish being in the limelight. Hillary, on the other hand, would be a serious, experienced, strong nominee to beat McCain.
