I do believe that is what stated in the article, he had picked up 9 the day before. I watched part of his speech in Oregon today and he is speaking like the democratic nominee already....and they say it couldn't happen? Woo Hoo and then some!!!

I was hoping you saw this thread. Obama is the Man...despite all the hating he was getting from the media and all the controversy they tried to spark, the American people have spoken and let the media know that they weren't falling for their okey doke. I'm proud of Obama, I say he has the nomination in the bag. Now hopefully the Clinton camp and the media doesn't try to pull some kind of trickery out of the bag to pull Obama down and sway voters.

At first, the media said Obama and Clinton were in a neck and neck tie around 2pm today (EST), but then about 1 1/2 hours later, they announced that Obama pushed ahead. I'm proud of the 2 superdelegates in the U.S. Virgin Islands (my parents home by the way) that pushed up the superdelegate count...they know what time it is!

Okay, everyone calm down... lol (j/k stay excited if you so choose excited)..the bigger fight is ahead and let's hope he wins all the superdelegates and finally gets the nod for being the Democratic nominee who will work hard to bring change to this country. It will take time of course, don't expect miracles to happen overnight because of one man , since we are all in this together despite our differences, and "we" have to make it happen. Remember Obama stated in one of his speeches, that "change will take time" so if we want to see change, we have to make it happen...that's all I'm trying to say. woot! woot!

So the partying is gonna start at my house shortly thereafter! Come November and January, I'll be partying in the streets! party

Be prepared of the "smear campaign" that Hannity from Hannity & Colmes on Fox news intends to do. He' been going through his trash can again, and plans to continue discussing Rev Wright and the new pastor of the United Trinity Church, Rev. Moss,. and Hannity has stated that he will continue to report on this throughout the primary/election. I find it disgusting that Hannity has this obsession to smear Obama. I'd like to know who Hannity thinks he is to tell Black preachers what they should be saying at the pulpit. Somebody needs to remind Hannity that the Jim Crow days are over and that neither Rev Wright or Rev Moss is running for President.

here's the deal though....hannity is not a persuasive news source...the only folks watching his arse are the same 35% that would never vote for *any* democrat in the first place...

if we stopped talking about hannity, rush and the sorts then their influence on mainstream media would dissolve.

I am so proud that Obama will become the nominee. For the first time in my life I have become completely involved in a campaign: phone banking, canvassing, precinct captain, etc...He has inspired me and brought me into politics when I hardly even paid attention.

I will work my heart out for him to win the presidency! Obama 08!!!

Obama camp: Clinton not looking for a deal


(CNN) -- "Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign rejected suggestions Sunday that Sen. Hillary Clinton is staying in the race in hopes of brokering some kind of agreement with the likely Democratic nominee.
art.clinton.obama.gi.jpg

Sen. Hillary Clinton isn't interested in the No. 2 spot, her campaign said S\e

"I don't believe that Sen. Clinton is looking for a deal," Obama's chief campaign strategist, David Axelrod, told "Fox News Sunday," when asked about suggestions she may want the Obama campaign's help retiring her campaign debt.

"I don't think that's what this is about," he said.

Last week, Obama sparked rumors that his campaign would pay off Clinton's campaign debts once he secured the nomination.

"I'd want to have a broad range of discussions with Sen. Clinton about how I could make her feel good about the process and have her on the team moving forward," Obama told reporters Friday.

Axelrod on Sunday called the discussion "premature," and said he believes Clinton "will have the capacity to retire her debt."

Axelrod said Clinton has "competed hard" and is "playing it out as she sees fit. I don't think she's waiting for a cue or a signal from us or an offer of financial assistance. And I think that would demean her to suggest otherwise."

He added, "I don't think even under any scenario ... that we were going to transfer money from the Obama campaign to the Clinton campaign. We obviously need the resources we have. We have a great task ahead of us." He said he believes "there was a misunderstanding out there about that."

Axelrod said he believes Clinton "will have the capacity to retire her debt."

He also denied rumors that the Clinton camp may be in some kind of discussions with the Obama camp to make her his running mate. "There's been no discussion about vice presidential nominees and this whole scenario," Axelrod said. Video Watch the latest on talks of a joint ticket »

Axelrod also denied reports that Obama's wife, Michelle, wants nothing to do with the Clintons, presenting a potential obstacle to what some have called a "dream ticket."

"That's false," he said, emphasizing that there have not been "any overtures" about a possible Clinton-Obama ticket.

Also on "Fox News Sunday," Clinton's top strategist, Howard Wolfson, said that "We think Sen. Clinton is going to be the nominee," and that he has "seen no evidence of her interest" in the No. 2 slot.

"This isn't about debt retirement or about the veep," he said."This is about winning campaigns in key upcoming states, making the case to superdelegates that based on Sen. Clinton's track record, winning the big states -- Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Florida -- running ahead of John McCain now nationally in polls and in those key states, that we would be the best nominee."

Wolfson said the Clinton camp is about $20 million in debt.

Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton campaign chairman, said Sunday said that Clinton is open to the possibility of loaning her campaign more money to continue in the race.Speaking on NBC's "Meet The Press," McAuliffe said he spoke to Clinton about the possibility of contributing more money, and "she said that she would be willing to do it."

Asked if the Clintons will be able to repay all debts after the campaign is over, McAuliffe said, "We plan on it."Both Democratic campaigns cite different polls to show the candidates' potential nationwide standings against Sen. McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee.

Wolfson added that if voters in West Virginia "want to end this on Tuesday, they're perfectly capable of it." Both campaigns expect Clinton to win in the state, and polls show her ahead by a wide margin.

But mathematically, Clinton's chances of collecting enough delegates to clinch the nomination have shrunk to the point that many consider her presidential aspirations for 2008 virtually over.

Both campaigns have broken fundraising records. But Obama has outpaced Clinton since January, outspending her in advertising by a wide margin in many states. The Clinton camp has large sums of money in donations usable only for a general election, if she were to make it that far.

Wolfson and Axelrod appeared separately on "Fox News Sunday," avoiding the head-to-head matchups they have often engaged in. They also limited attacks on each other to a minimum, in a noticeable change from the back-and-forth throughout much of the campaign"
