Hillary is winding down the campaign:
Hillary Rodham Clinton will give her post-primary speech in New York Tuesday night, a rare departure from the campaign trail.
It's been a long wonderful roller coaster. How ironic the ride has been, with Hillary the monster turning into the character so many were rooting for, even while opposing her.
Staffers who have worked for her on he ground in Puerto Rico, South Dakota and Montana have been invited to attend the event or go home for further instructions, campaign aides said. The New York senator had no other events Tuesday. She planned to address AIPAC Wednesday in Washington.
For Bill Clinton, as usual, it's all about him.

"I want to say also that this may be the last day I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind," the former president told Clinton supporters in South Dakota, ABC and NBC reported on their news websites.

"I thought I was out of politics, till Hillary decided to run. But it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to go around and campaign for her for president," he added at the start of his stump speech.

What happens next, if anything, is unclear.
"The only real counsel to Hillary is Bill; it's not a wide circle, so we're not sure what they'll do," Newsday quoted one of Clinton's top supporters in New York as saying.
