Hillary Clinton is trying to defend her decision to stay in the presidential race.She's giving Puerto Rico an unusual moment in the sun during the race, campaigning at a church Sunday morning. The American territory votes on June first.

Clinton also wrote an op-ed piece that appeared in the "New York Daily News" today. She said she can still win, and claimed that staying in the race would help unite the democratic party.

But former president Jimmy Carter is the latest powerful party figure to say the race is basically over. "I think a lot of the superdelegates will make a decision quite, announced quite rapidly after the final primary on June 3rd. But I think at that point it'll be time for her to give it up," says Carter.

Barack Obama took a little time off the campaign trail today to make the commencement speech at Wesleyan University. He replaced Ted Kennedy after the Massachusetts senator was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
