It’s official. Senator Barack Obama is the Democratic
nominee for President of the United States. Obama won when Senator
Hillary Clinton withdrew her name from nomination during her New York
State roll call vote. That meant Obama won the nomination by
acclamation. The roll call vote stopped and the convention crowd went
wild. They joined in singing the song “Love Train” which was being
pumped through the public address system. Tomorrow night Barack Obama
will accept the nomination at Invesco Field in Denver. Over 70,000
will be in the stands.
