Barack Obama wins Democrat nomination

Well I've been backing him from the start as the Democratic nominee and finally last night he was confirmed as John McCain's opponent in November. This has possibly been the longest drawn out primary season going right to the bitter end. Hilary Clinton is certainly a formidable fighter and fought him right to the end even though she'd effectively lost a long time ago.

I never really believed that Obama would win the nomination back in January and thought Hilary would come through - a prediction I thankfully got wrong. Now he has to pick a running mate, Hilary is touting herself around and has a strong case but given the divisive nature of the primary campaign is it really a viable option? One thing that does need to happen is that Democrats have to come together and unite behind Obama, if they embark on infighting they'll hand the presidency to John McCain and that would be a disaster for the US and the world. Obama is the change candidate and hopefully will be the next President of the United States.

Let the battle commence!
