On June 7, winning New Jersey pushed Hillary Clinton over the delegate hump and made her the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
The story of her win goes far deeper than her current race against Sen. Bernie Sanders, however.
In 2008, Clinton was stabbed in the back at every turn, and after losing the nomination to Barack Obama, conventional wisdom (and Clinton herself!) dictated that she would never again run for president.
That she clawed back to again lead the party that betrayed her is a feat part Jon Snow, part Cersei Lannister.
Or as Peter Beinart puts it:

A few more bites (all about the guy Clinton will be going up against now):
"While I oppose the Democratic nominee, Donald Trump's latest statements, in context with past attacks on Hispanics, women and the disabled like me, make it certain that I cannot and will not support my party's nominee for President regardless of the political impact on my candidacy or the Republican Party." - Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk joins the small group of GOP lawmakers actively opposing Trump, via Politico
"As a human being, and especially as a Christian, I would be ashamed to admit that I voted for Trump." - Steve Johnston declares independence from the GOP, via The Federalist
“I fear that the Whig party is dissolved and that no longer are there Whig principles to excite zeal and simulate exertion." - Henry Clay back in 1848, opining on the nomination of Zachary Taylor, a man whose political-party-destroying rise Donald Trump seems to be echoing, via Politico
