15 months ... and counting

Leave it to Barack Obama to put the long, L-O-N-G campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in perspective.

"I've been running for president for about 15 months now, which means that there are babies who are now walking and talking who were born since I announced for president," he said Wednesday during a campaign stop in New Albany, Ind. "This has been a long primary season."
It will be at least another three weeks -- and if it goes all the way to the convention, it could be another four months.
