Good behind item, since they give both damage and survivabilty. I actually lost to an AD Kennen whose build was 6 Dorans Blades (well, my bot lane lost to him :P), then he started replacing them with real items.

Overall though, only some champions actually want a Doran's Ring, and not too many want more than one (2 on Gragas or Brand is fine, it makes your instant AoE clear much more mana-efficient).

So is it situational to get 2?

Yes. Say you started 1, but had a bad time in lane and had to back early with only about 500ish gold. Would a longsword or another blade help you more? The blade will give you more health, more sustain and could turn the lane around for you. The LS would be just a touch of damage.

But if I had enough for a vamp, I would get that because it builds into my core items.

It used to be good stacking Dorans. But then they nerfed health... And sustain... etc.... Only stack if you're seriously behind.
Since Riot doesn't like to update archaic mana costs on champions and instead focus on giving new AP champs abilities with 1/3 the mana costs as old champions, Doran's Rings are a helpful way for these old champions to manage their mana while not sacrificing damage.
