BREAKING: Hillary Clinton Dropping Out Friday

According to ABC:

Sen. Hillary Clinton said this afternoon on a conference call with supporters that she will appear alongside her supporters on Friday and drop out of the presidential race, Democratic sources tell ABC News’ Kate Snow.

There is a lot of work left to be done, particularly in unifying the Democratic Party; the divisions that this primary has created–and that the Clinton campaign has, at times, exploited–have to be healed before November.

Hillary Clinton’s political future depends on how she drops out and what she does from here.  If she follows through with her promise to do everything she can to get a Democrat in the White House, I don’t doubt for a second that the junior Senator from New York will have a long, bright political future ahead of her.

Nonetheless, this is a bittersweet end to a historic Presidential campaign.
