Obama Secures Nomination, According to Network Projections

By Chris Cillizza

Sen. Barack Obama has effectively secured the Democratic nomination for president, according to several television networks and the Associated Press -- an historic achievement that for the first time will place an African American at the top of a major political party's ticket.

Obama's apparent nomination victory came even as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton scored a come-from-behind victory in South Dakota, a state where Obama was expected to win relatively easily a few weeks ago. South Dakota and Montana, which allocate a total of 31 delegates, brought the 2008 Democratic primary process to a close after five months of voting.

The victory in South Dakota, while gratifying for Clinton, makes no difference as Obama has already crested the magic number of delegates needed to claim the party's nomination.

* yeah, ok... full disclosure... at 60, i'm arguably a senior citizen myself, and i've got nothin' against a geezer running for prez... when i say something like the above, i'm just sayin' it for effect... lord only knows, given my asset-free existence, i'm pro'ly going to be working my flabby, white, geriatric ass off until i fall out of the saddle... believe me, my beef with mccain has zero to do with his age...
