Maybe she realized the potential fallout from that speech last night. Maybe she realized that those 17.5M voters may not take kindly to being used as bargaining chips. Maybe she’s just tired of fighting.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is moving to suspend her campaign and endorse Senator Barack Obama as the Democratic presidential nominee, probably on Friday, according to a senior adviser to Mrs. Clinton.

Her decision came after Democratic members of Congress urged her Wednesday to leave the race and allow the party to unite around Mr. Obama. […]

“We pledged to support her to the end,” said Representative Charles B. Rangel, a New York Democrat who has been a patron of Mrs. Clinton since she first ran for the Senate. “Our problem is not being able to determine when the hell the end is.”
