Obama clinches Democratic nomination

Barack Obama effectively clinched the Democratic presidential nomination today, based on an Associated Press tally of convention delegates, becoming the first black candidate ever to lead our party into a fall campaign for the White House.

Personally I wanted Hillary to win. I agree with Obama's policies, it's just that I agree with Hillary's a little bit more. It has been a long and eventful/revealing journey for both candidates. Now that its over I have a few last comments.

1. Hillary should be Barack's running mate. This is because if Hillary was his running mate then Barack would have all of Hillary's voters locked up in his pocket.
2. Michigan's and Florida's delegates should not have been slashed. This action is comparable to the "three-fifths" judgement in 1787. This ruling basically stated that 5 black people equaled to 3 people (the significance of this was for determining the number of Representatives in the House).
3. I really didn't care who the next President is as long as it's not McCain or that fucking war hawk Biden.
4. Just to recap Democratic Nominees (in order of Delegate count): Barack Obama Jr., Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Dennis Kucinnich, Joe Biden, Christopher Dodd, Mike Gravel, Bill Richardson, and Tom Vilsack.

I'm now rooting for Obama. Best of luck in the election, Mr. Obama. :) :P
