It's Official! Obama for President!

Just a few minutes ago, I watched history being made.

Sen. Hillary Clinton actually delivered the delegates from the State of New York which put him over the top by saying "Barack Obama is our candidate and he will be our president!"

And she did not proceed with the threatened and possibly divisive roll call.

Sen. Barack Obama is now officially the Democratic nominee for the presidency of the United States of America.

This is something that has never been seen before. It is something that may and may never see again.

Just to update you on a few of the recent happenings here in Denver, earlier this morning, The Black Caucus held a meeting at the Colorado Convention Center which featured brief comments by the lady that everyone is talking about - Michelle Obama.

Copies of the September 2008 Ebony Magazine featuring her image and her story on the front cover were distributed, as well as the new report by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies titled "Blacks & The 2008 Democratic National Convention."

Just two hours ago, Sen. Hillary Clinton in a message to several hundred of her delegates at the Colorado Convention Center's Korbel Ballroom, she released her delegates. When she said she was releasing them, the crowd shouted "No!" She said that she'd cast her vote for Barack Obama.
By the way, the funniest t-shirt I have seen (and it seems like there are thousands) said "Barack in the Day" and has this real old picture of Barack Obama with a teeny afro.
