Choosing A Democratic Presidential Candidate

This is a modern-day precedent for the Democrats to go this long without a candidate. The party usually chooses one by March or so, but the battle continues.

Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were hoping to win Tuesday primaries.

"It's just another primary," said El Paso County Democratic Chair John Morris. He said what happened in Indiana and North Carolina won't put one candidate on top.

Morris said this fight between the two candidates will now forward until the next primary, which means more mud-slinging and dividing of the democrats, but he added that this could be to their advantage. “The turnout for the primaries is crazy. There is a huge level of interest in those states."

The last primary is in June. Morris said the democrats have to choose their candidate by then, so the party can unite over 5 months before November.
