I have to dissent on this:

She made the decision pretty darn quickly (certainly by historical standards).

There was no serious mathematical possibility for her to win at least a month or two ago. And historically, losing candidates concede after the last primary has delivered an insurmountable victory to his or her opponent - and usually long before. Those were the rules the Clintons set for Jerry Brown back in 1992; they are rules everyone else follows. I see no reason to acquiesce to the delusions and pathologies of Clinton entitlement. And if Bevan weren't desperate to stop Obama being the final verdict on Bush, he'd say the same thing.
