I want to stress the importance of what Laura has done. Actually, scratch that. I want to stress the decency. Like others in this race, Laura could have stayed and stayed and stayed and stayed. But she realized, at some point, that A. The myriad candidates are killing Democratic chances; B. She wasn’t going to win.

So instead of lurching forward, hoping for a miracle or lathering in the ego wash that is electoral politics, Laura stepped aside.

It couldn’t have been easy.

It couldn’t have been fun.

But it’s righteous.
