QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“Why should Hillary Clinton — until there’s a nominee with the number of necessary delegates — why should she get out? We’ve never asked any other potential contender to get out before someone has the magic number. Why is Hillary Clinton different?” — Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe on NBC’s “Today” show.
