The Clintons will not oblige with a clear-cut departure but this from McAuliffe is a good sign:

“If Senator Obama gets the number, I think Hillary Clinton will congratulate him, call him the nominee. We haven't gotten to that number yet.”

But we will tonight. When Obama passes the magic number, what to post? Readers are hereby invited to submit quotes, YouTubes, poems, songs, photographs and whatever you dream up to commemmorate the Clintons' departure from presidential politics for, well, at least three years. This is a celebration that can unite Democrats and Republicans. Out the word "celebrate" in your email content lines. We'll do our best to commemmorate the moment, er, appropriately.

We want to hear what you think about this article. Submit a letter to the editor or write to letters@theatlantic.com.
