In the race for the Democratic Presidential nominee, recent forerunner Senator Barack Obama pulled ahead and reportedly took the overall victory Tuesday. He marked the day as a defining moment for our nation regarding his presumptive win with securing 2,156 delegate votes as compared to Senator Hillary Clinton’s 1,923 votes. However, Clinton maintains that she received the popular vote through the primaries, but did not comment on her future plans for the race. In fact, she asked sponsors to go onto to voice their opinions. Some Democratic supporters are urging Obama to unite the party by putting Clinton on the VP ticket. While there has been no discussion between the two campaigns on this matter, Clinton’s group has publicly said the New York senator is open to becoming Vice President. On Wednesday, both candidates went to Washington for a Senate budget vote and to address a public affairs committee. The two also spoke on the phone for a few minutes and reportedly planned to meet together in the near future. That’s the latest in the bid for the Democratic Presidential race. I’m Dana Ward.
