Many Democrats worry that the lengthy contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will make it harder for the party come November's general election. Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen has a solution — hold a primary for the superdelegates in June.
"The DNC needs to organize it," he tells Madeleine Brand. "My thought would be that it would just be a business-like meeting. Have it some place that's easily accessible."
He urges making the two-day meeting transparent, by keeping everything on the record.
"For the good of the party we need to bring this thing to closure," he says. "Let's get on to fighting John McCain."
Inside the Beltway, people have not been terribly friendly to the idea, he says.
Outside, however, people have been more open.
"I think they look at it and say it's a common-sense idea ... Let's not just go on auto-pilot. Let's steer this thing."
He said Obama said it might be a solution.
