Barack Obama wins Democratic presidential nomination

The fight appears to be over. Obama's mantra of change has resonated with voters, and outshone Hillary Clinton's experience and name recognition.

Obama gave a speech at St. Paul, Minnesota this evening - at the very site where the Republicans will have their convention in a few months. In typical Obama fashion, it was a very eloquent speech.

Now, the Democrats need to re-unite and present a strong agenda, if they want to win the presidency.
