7. Strongly agree
Real Clear Politics estimates that 16,639,064 people already voted for Hillary Clinton(*). It is important that the Party respects these voters (including those in Florida and Michigan) so that they will vote for the Democratic ticket in November.

Hillary knows that she cannot openly criticize Obama now that he is very clearly most likely to be the nominee. She will focus on her strengths and direct her attacks against McCain.

I think she will stay in the race through June 3rd. Not just for the 6 remaining contests (3 of which she is likely to win), but also to give the DNC rules committee a chance to look at the issues around Florida and Michigan (they are meeting at the end of this month).

My guess is that the remaining undeclared "superdelegates" will swing behind Obama during the days after June 3rd, so he will be the nominee by June 10th.
