Panetta Calls for Clinton to Concede

Former Clinton White House chief of staff Leon Panetta said today:

It's pretty clear unless there's a bolt of lightning, Barack Obama is likely to win the Democratic nomination. She's put up a good fight and put up a good race, but I think there's a time now where she needs to concede and unify the party.

If she remains in the race until the final primary on June 3, Panetta says:
I guess what I would do if she is going to do that is warn them they should remain on issues, they shouldn’t engage in personal attacks... Whether the winner wins will depend an awful lot on how the loser loses.
