Bill Clinton courts superdelegates in California

Former President Bill Clinton says Democrats concerned about what the deadlocked presidential contest between his wife and Barack Obama may be doing to the party should just "chill out" and let the race run its course. Clinton dismissed suggestions by Obama supporters that Hillary Rodham Clinton was damaging the party by staying in the race even though she is behind in delegates and unlikely to overtake the Illinois senator based on the contests to come. "There is somehow the suggestion that because we are having a vigorous debate about who would be the best president, we are going to weaken this party in the fall," he said Sunday at the state Democratic Party convention. "Chill out. "We're going to win this election if we just chill out and let everybody have their say," Clinton added.
