Barack Obama Clinches Presidential Nomination

Today, June 3, 2008 is one of the great days in United States history. Barack Obama has clinched the democratic party nomination by winning more than 2,118 delegates to the Democratic Convention. This day must rank with the ending of the Civil War, the end of World War II and landing on the moon for importance in our national history. An African American has just become a candidate for President. This has been long overdue and it is a very welcome development. I hope all parents are allowing their children, no matter how young, to watch these events unfold. I can think of few things that would be so inspiring to children. It is incredible to watch Barack Obama achieve something so important to the entire nation. Congratulations to him and to our country.
