277. I don't even understand what her point was.
The California primary was long ago. Just as with Bill, Bobby Kennedy was in the race in June because the California primary was in June at the time and California had 800 billion delegates even back then. If it had been in February in 1968 or 1992 those primaries may well have been over long before June.

As far as his being shot, I don't think that has any particular relevance either way. I don't think she pulled it out to scare Obama supporters, I think she was just speaking off the cuff and spouted some irrelevant nonsense because she hasn't slept since 2007.

There are plenty of good arguments to be made for why a candidate should stay in the race as long as possible. Hillary and Howard Dean both came third in Iowa, and if Dean hadn't dropped out early we might not even be in this mess right now.
