Obama Clinches Democratic Nomination

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Barack Obama has clinched the Democratic
presidential nomination, becoming the first black candidate to lead
a major party into a campaign for the White House. Hillary Rodham
Clinton swiftly signaled her interest in joining his ticket as
running mate.
Obama sealed his nomination victory Tuesday, based on public
declarations from many "superdelegates" as well as private
support from others who confirmed their intentions to The
Associated Press.
