Reid Says to Leave Clinton Alone
By Paul Kane
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said today that Hillary Rodham Clinton should be "left alone" so the New York senator can make a decision about her future without outside pressure.
Suggesting she would make the decision shortly, Reid said he is urging super-delegates to "keep their decisions in their pocket" so Clinton can decide how to proceed in her presidential campaign. It would be wrong for her to feel that she was forced from the race, Reid said, echoing a concern many Democrats have that Clinton's voters need to feel that she has been treated fairly at the end of this process.
"Senator Clinton needs to be left alone ... Let this week work its course," Reid told reporters in the Capitol.
Reid said he would endorse a candidate himself by the end of the week.
