On the eve of the final primary contests, Hillary Clinton is trying to gain the support of undecided superdelegates -- and win over party leaders who already have committed to back Barack Obama for the nomination.

After winning the Puerto Rico primary Sunday, Clinton told reporters on her campaign plane that "One thing about superdelegates is that they can change their minds."

Clinton invited Virgin Islands superdelegate Kevin Rodriguez, a recent convert, to travel with her to South Dakota where she will campaign today. Rodriguez had initially supported Clinton, switched to Obama, and recently returned to her camp.

Obama will hold a town-hall meeting in Michigan Monday.

South Dakota and Montana vote tomorrow. Obama is favored in both states and he goes into them with 2,069 delegates, 47 shy of the number now needed to secure the nomination.

Clinton has 1,915.5 delegates.
