Later on today, Hillary Clinton will concede and Barack Obama will officially become the Democratic nominee. All I can say is: IT’S ABOUT TIME!
It was pretty clear after Tuesday’s primary that Obama would become the nominee, however the Clinton campaign seemed oblivious. I respect Senator Clinton, and think she has worked hard for this country, but I thought her speech on Tuesday night struck a bad note. Terry McAuliffe actually introduced her as “the next president!” I am just happy that this weekend will signify the beginning of a general election campaign in which Clinton helps Obama in his quest to become our next president.
I am so proud and happy for Barack Obama. This is not only an historical event in American history, but it is a true testament to Obama’s ability as a leader. He not only had to overcome racial barriers, but he went up against what can be described as the most powerful couple in the Democratic party and came out victorious. I cannot wait to journey with him on his path to the presidency.
Lets get the ball rolling: OBAMA ’08!
