Obama aide Anita Dunn, per ABC News:

“Asked if Obama would wait to get a concession call from Clinton before claiming the nomination, Dunn said the onus was on Clinton now that the Democratic Party has firmed up the number of delegates needed to claim the party’s nod.”

“‘He’s not going to wait by the phone like a high-school girl waiting for a date,’ said Dunn. ‘That’s not Barack Obama.'”

“‘After Tuesday,’ Dunn added, referring to the final contests of South Dakota and Montana, Clinton ‘can decide how united she wants this party to be.'”

Obama himself, in Saturday night South Dakota press availability: “I think that Senator Clinton and former President Clinton love this country. They love the Democratic Party. I think they deeply believe that Democrats need to win in November. And so I trust that they’re going to do the right thing.”
