A leading Democratic lawmaker says when the last two Democratic primaries are over, either Barack Obama or Hillary Rodham Clinton needs to drop out, if not before.

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank says the candidate who is trailing after South Dakota and Montana vote on June 3rd should be the one to quit, even if it's Clinton, whom he supports. Frank says the decision should probably come sooner, if it becomes clear that one of the candidates has no practical chance of claiming the nomination.

Obama currently leads Clinton in both pledged delegates and in the popular vote. But neither can mathematically win a majority by June 3rd and the final outcome will depend on superdelegates. As a member of Congress, Frank is one of the nearly 800 superdelegates to the Democratic National Convention.
