"...if we are to emerge as a united party ...free the delegates...and let the convention work its will."
"...should there be a different decision from the one that has been so widely predicted, should a different decision emerge out of the Democratic Convention in August it would only be prudent for one like myself who believes very much in the 2 party system to perhaps consider what my position then would be.
