Golden day for the Golden Boy

obama wins nomination

As of today, Senator Barack Obama has effectively clinched the Democratic nomination. He has now secured all the delegates and super-delegates he needs — even picking up a couple of coveted super-duper-delegates along the way. And to further seal the deal, no less than God Almighty pledged His support for the candidate today saying “This is My Son, in whom I am well pleased… and by the way, Rev. Wright is a putz.”

So with these crucial endorsements in his pocket Senator Obama was able to safely declare victory in Minnesota Tuesday night:

“Tonight, I can stand before you and say that I will be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States,” Obama said during a huge rally in St. Paul, Minn. – the city where John McCain will accept the GOP nomination this summer.

Appearing overwhelmed, Obama paused for a long period as the crowd of roughly 17,000 people at the Xcel Energy Center erupted in wild applause and sign-waving.

Another 15,000 people were outside, and chants of “Yes we can!” – Obama’s catch phrase – were heard throughout his speech.

“Tonight we mark the end of one historic journey with the beginning of another – a journey that will bring a new and better day to America,” he said.

Barack did attempt to give his opponent Hillary Clinton a buzz after the speech. But as Obama soon learned, you don’t call Hillary…. SHE calls YOU.

He tried to call her twice following the speech – but got her voicemail. She finally returned the call as his plane was about to fly out of St. Paul to Washington.

Hmmm… so would she really have answered her phone at three in the morning?

Incidentally I would just love to have heard the phone message Obama left for Hillary:

“Hi Hillary… Barack. Sorry I couldn’t talk to you in person but I just wanted say it has been a long grueling journey and a tough race for both of us. I would be remiss if I didn’t take this golden opportunity to say, LOOOO-HOOO-HOOOOOOZER! HA HA HA HA HA!! AH-HA HA HA HA HA! That’s about all. We’ll touch base on the Veep thing soon so that maybe you can save a little face over this… see ya… sweetie. CLICK”

“Alright lets catch that plane… where’s my smokes?”
