The following notes were passed along by someone who listened to the just-completed conference call conducted by members of New York's Democratic congressional delegation:

Sen. Charles Rangel's a little impatient about BET Founder Bob Johnson's letter to Rep, James Clyburn urging Clyburn to urge (a third party urge! -- no, a fourth party urge!) to put Clinton on the ticket. Rangel said he worried about Democratic Reps. Meeks, Towns and Clark, all of whom face primary challengers from pro-Obama candidates.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler said that the delegation should do everything in its power to get Clinton on the ticket

Rep. Nita Lowey made a plea for patience. The reality, she said, is that the party has to unify, but Hillary needs some time to adjust... maybe even two weeks.
