Put it on the Board!
Whether Hilary Clinton wants to admit it or not, this thing is over:
Barack Obama effectively clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday after a grueling marathon, based on an Associated Press tally of convention delegates, becoming the first black candidate ever to lead his party into a fall campaign for the White House...We obviously have a fascinating several months ahead of us, but if you somehow haven't realized it yet, you're witnessing history being made. And while pundits can point to limitless aspects of the importance of this contest, I still think that the greatest upside has been the untold number of previously disinterested Americans that have now engaged themselves in the process. A victory for all of us.
The tally was based on public declarations from delegates as well as from another 15 who have confirmed their intentions to the AP. It also included 11 delegates Obama was guaranteed as long as he gained 30 percent of the vote in South Dakota and Montana later in the day. It takes 2,118 delegates to clinch the nomination.
