Obama Clinches the Nomination!!!!!

According to the AP, anyway:
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.
Well, first tan guy anyway. w00t!
Update 1: Hillary says she’s willing to be veep and some…other stuff.
On a conference call with other New York lawmakers, Clinton, a New York senator, said she was willing to become Obama’s vice presidential nominee if it would help Democrats win the White House, according to a participant who spoke on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to speak for Clinton.
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from Democratic Rep. Nydia Velazquez, who said she believed the best way for Obama to win key voting blocs, including Hispanics, would be for him to choose Clinton as his running mate.
“I am open to it,” Clinton replied
I bet you are, I just bet you are. Sorry after that assassination crack we just can’t trust you. Too risky. Besides, why don’t you go for, oh, I don’t know…Senate Majority Leader? Why do you think Dianne Feinstein is one of those pulling for you to go VP, eh? ‘Cause she wants you out of the way!
More Sen Clinton:
Clinton also told colleagues the delegate math was not there for her to overtake Obama, but that she wanted to take time to determine how to leave the race in a way that would best help Democrats.
“I deserve some time to get this right,” she said, even as the other lawmakers forcefully argued for her to press Obama to choose her as his running mate.
Wait. whazzat? You’ve had time my friend. What the heck have you been doing running this hopeless cause for the last three months!!!?????
