Kerry Shifts Focus to Race Against Bush

With wins in 9 out of 10 states holding contests Tuesday, Sen. John Kerry all but seals the Democratic nomination for president. Rival Sen. John Edwards will quit the race Wednesday. As the Democratic Party unites behind Kerry, the Massachusetts senator steels himself for the general-election battle against President Bush, promising to fight what he calls the "Republican attack machine." Hear NPR's Scott Horsley.
