11. Actually? I don't think she should drop out. Seriously.
She is *going* to win WV and KY. Obama is *going* to win OR. And you know what? It looks really bad to lose two primaries in one day to a candidate who isn't even running.

I want to see her run positive; last night was a great opportunity to start changing the tone, and she took it, to her great credit. I want to see her keep pushing her ideas (though we could do without that awful gas-tax holiday). I want to see her stay in through the next round. And then I would like to see her concede the nomination gracefully.

I'd like to see her as VP, but I don't know that she'd accept that. Either way, though, I'm just glad that the end is in sight.
