Democrats look to unify behind one candidate

Democrats are getting close to choosing a presidential candidate.

Party leaders say they want undecided delegates to make up their minds soon after Tuesday's final primaries.

Barack Obama holds a sizable lead in delegates but Hillary Clinton is not giving up. Several busloads of her backers plan to be in Washington tomorrow to demonstrate outside a meeting of the party rules committee. The panel will decide how to handle Florida and Michigan. Both states were penalized for moving up their primaries in defiance of party rules. Clinton backers now want the Florida and Michigan delegates counted, even though they agreed with the sanctions earlier.

The pressure is on to find a solution and a nominee to avoid dragging out a fight Democrats fear could hurt them in November.
