Congratulations to Barack Obama, the official nominee of the Democratic Party in the 2008 Presidential election.
Was anyone watching the roll call? It's fun to hear all the "The great state of Indiana, home of Senator Evan Bayh, the Hoosier state, casts its vote for..." stuff! It just cracks me up to hear all that. (By the way, Senator Evan Bayh will be speaking during the 8 o'clock ET hour, if you'd like to get a glimpse of the guy I've written about.)
But what was really cool...did you see Senator Clinton as the spokesperson for New York? Did you see her asking for a suspension of the roll call, with a vote for Obama as the nominee by acclamation?
We just watched a woman who came very close to getting the nomination call for the nomination of a black man.
Think about that for a moment. I am in awe.
