According to a Associated Press Story by Beth Fouhy, Barack Obama will be THE FIRST BLACK CANDIDATE IN HISTORY to run for the presidency of the United States of America! He only needs to garner 30% of the vote in South Dakota and Montana today. And that looks very likely.

On NBC's "Today Show," Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe said that once Obama gets the majority of convention delegates, "I think Hillary Clinton will congratulate him and call him the nominee."

Other Clinton campaign advisers, speaking anonymously because they weren't authorized to divulge her plans, said Clinton has made a strategic decision to not formally end her campaign, giving her leverage to negotiate with Obama on various matters including a possible vice presidential nomination for her. She also wants to press him on issues he should focus on in the fall, such as health care.

Clinton is enormously popular and has succeeded in getting millions (approximately 17 to 18 million) of votes from demographics that Obama wasn't quite able to attract. And, given the fact that she is eminently qualified and would bring a level of experience to the administration that Barack lacks, I believe that she would be THE BEST POSSIBLE CANDIDATE FOR VICE PRESIDENT.

I voted for Barack in the Arizona primaries even though I had some serious misgivings about his lack of experience. Even given those misgivings I am very excited about his potential to bring very real and very lasting change to a country that desperately needs it. I would be even more excited if he chooses Hillary as his running mate. I think the two of them together would be able to defeat ANY republican candidate and could very likely bring (on their proverbial coat tails) a substantial and also very much needed change to the congressional make up as well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. And "we the people" are hoping that the democrats can come together long enough to make that happen!
