Obama Nearing Nomination

WASHINGTON--Democratic Party superdelegates began to move in large numbers today to Barack Obama, bringing him to the brink of winning the party's presidential nomination and becoming the first African American to lead a major party in its campaign for the White House.

As voters went to the polls in South Dakota and Montana, the final two states to hold primary elections, Obama picked up at least nine superdelegates who had until now remained neutral or supported other candidates in the 16 months of campaigning. The Obama campaign says that it remains 12 delegates short of the 2,118 needed to clinch the nomination. - Los Angeles Times
Hillary Clinton is not going to give up in any way, shape, or form -- she announced that she is open to accepting the Vice President position should Obama win.
