Did we finally reach the finish line for nomination or not?

Last night the final primaries were held in South Dakota and Montana.  Clinton carried SD and Obama took MT.  Obama has reached and surpassed the number necessary to nominate.  Unpledged delegates are continuing to move in his direction.  But some claim the race still isn’t over.  So is Senator Obama the nominee or isn’t he?  As always, your CIVIL input is appreciated.

    Careful Ed, Andrew Davey may throw a fit if you suggest Obama is the nominee and will say you are making him dislike Obama. And then he may try to silence you on this blog like he has threatened on me because I believe Obama is the rightful nominee.

    But you are a reasonable guy Ed, unlike the Hillary shills out there. You know he is the nominee and we need to unite NOW if we want to beat John “100 more years” McCain. Andrew will not publicly admit he will vote for BARACK OBAMA in November, making general statements about supporting a Democrat. So Andrew last chance, since this is part of the terms of agreement, WILL YOU VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA IN NOVEMBER? Simple yes will do.

    This doesn’t even merit debate at this point…Obama’s the nominee. End of story.

    So does Andrew feel this is constructive behavior by his camp? And I have not made one sexist statement in regards to Obama winning. Boy Andrew this behavior makes me not want Hillary on the ticket.

    Actually, Message, Andrew has clearly stated repeatedly that he will vote for Obama in November. Andrew has said so in simple declarative sentences. Now, please, let’s all try to play nice. Obama plays nice, as should those of us who support him.

    The latest from the New York Times is that Clinton will suspend her campaign on Friday. We still need her help though and trampling on her most ardent supporters is not the way to do it.

    I suggest if you really want to help Obama, give Clinton some money to pay off her debt. Just a thought.

    The Message, did you ever stop to think that what Rep. Clyburn experienced could have been perpetrated by a group of people CLAIMING to be Hillary supporters?

    No, you didn’t.

    (and I’m an Obama supporter)

    Heather, why would ANYONE even consider paying for Clinton’s debt? She ran her campaign many weeks longer than she probably should have and borrowed from herself – there’s no way in hell anyone should give to her when they could be giving to the Dem’s campaign for president. She’s not a poor person – let her eat the cost of her folly.

    The reason to help pay off some of her debt is not to punish the small businesses and other vendors she used — the local deli or pizza parlor, the print shop, the low-level staffers who submit expense reports, and so on.
