Former President Carter and Al Gore have discussed plans to tell Hillary Rodham Clinton that she must abandon her presidential bid, for the sake of the Democratic Party.

"They're in discussions," a source close to Carter told the Scotland on Sunday newspaper. "Carter has been talking to Gore. They will act, possibly together, or in sequence."

The newspaper said the message will be delivered -- it's just a matter of when.

Barack Obama leads Clinton in the race for pledged delegates, and political experts say its nearly impossible for her to catch. But she retains a lead among superdelegates, and has pinned all of her hopes on them. She continues to insist that she will stay in the race until the Democratic convention in August.

According to Scotland on Sunday, the Carter-Gore talks have centered on two likely scenarios for ending Clinton's bid: Carter and Gore meet with her privately and ask her to step down. Or both of them appear in public and endorse Obama -- which is likely to puch a majority of superdelegates to support Obama.
