HARRY REID: "IT WILL BE DONE."

The Las Vegas Review-Journal's Molly Ball has Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the record seeming to imply that high-level, uncommitted Democrats are ready to tell Hillary to quit the race:

Question: Do you still think the Democratic race can be resolved before the convention?

Reid: Easy.

Q: How is that?

Reid: It will be done.

Q: It just will?

Reid: Yep.

Q: Magically?

Reid: No, it will be done. I had a conversation with Governor Dean (Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean) today. Things are being done.

Cryptic. But as I wrote yesterday, the tide is truly changing -- power players such as Reid and Nancy Pelosi are now willing to say on the record that they believe primary campaigning should end after the remaining states have voted and pledged delegates have been allotted. That means things are looking dismal for the Clinton camp, since extending the race indefinitely into a superdelegate fight is their only practical strategy.
