Obama clinches Democratic presidential nomination


hosted.ap.org

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois sealed the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday, a historic step toward his once-improbable goal of becoming the nation's first black president. A defeated Hillary Rodham Clinton maneuvered for the vice presidential spot on his fall ticket.

Obama's victory set up a five-month campaign with Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a race between a 46-year-old opponent of the Iraq War and a 71-year-old former Vietnam prisoner of war and staunch supporter of the current U.S. military mission.

No matter how you cut this... its historic... and a positive change for this country.

Even if he loses... he and Clinton have done this country a great service... no more will a black or woman be dismissed as a serious candidate simply because they are a black or a woman.

So it's official then? Is there anyhting Hillary can do to change that fact, and still get the nomination or something?

She could try to force the issue at the convention but at this stage of the game it will just make her look like a sore loser.

That is true for a lot of people and after the the past 8 years it is seriously the most important election in my lifetime.

Even though I was more against Clinton than for Obama I am pleased for him and proud for our country... its about time we finally put race behind us and grow up as a people.
