Gee, didn't see that coming from somebody who doesn't support Obama.

In other words, "Take off that blindfold Lady Justice."

Obama is being a lot more appreciative of Clinton in his speech than Clinton was of Obama.

HAHAHA.. THEY ARE PLAYING BEAUTIFUL DAY RIGHT NOW.. as Obama comes to speak!

I hung in there for Hillary the whole time. With great respect for Obama all along.
But this is truly historical and I'm moving full speed ahead to get Obama elected.
Will he announce Hillary as his running mate? Would she do it?
We will see..

He's the winner, he has a lot more room to be magnanimous than she does, at this point. I'm sure we'll be hearing more pro-Obama sentiments from her when she officially concedes in the next day or two.

I'm obviously not an expert on this so I don't understand what is the point of not conceding if Obama has won the nomination already?

I think she's, in a way, showing respect for all of those who stood by her even when it started to look dim and even pitch black. Plus, she could be trying to raise extra funds to help get her campaign out of debt. She may be even trying to firm up support for 2012.

He hasn't "officially" won yet. If I'm not mistaken, at this point, he won't until Hillary concedes. There's still the (impossible) chance that his super-delegates could shift their support to Hillary. This would involve Hillary not conceding, taking it to the convention, and forcing the super-delegates to cast votes there. But the way things are now, the longer she puts off the concession, the more delusional she looks.

There isn't one. I really hope she will bow out gracefully. Even though I supported her continued efforts "not to give up" - It's not giving up now. Obama got there fair and square. I don't want to see the party divided because she is bitter. I don't think that will happen because fundamentally I feel, she want's what is best for the country.

This is from thepage.time.com

Andrea Mitchell says on MSNBC:

“Clinton advisers are telling me that she wants to sit down very quickly with Barack Obama, and she wants to do this in a private way.”

“She doesn’t want to concede or embrace him until she’s had a chance to sit down with him and explore what’s on his mind, and her mind.”

Suggests the meeting could happen on Wednesday, either in Washington or New York.

They just said on CNN 17,000 people were inside the arena where Obama's rally was.

Another 15,000 were outside.

I don't see McCain doing that. He barley put together a high school basketball crowd tonight.

So, since Obama clinched it.

He should get a boost in the polls.

It can be up to 10%.
