Making a History

Last night, Senator Barack Obama won enough delegates to become the first African-American major party presidential nominee. It was a big battle for the spot between him and Senator Hillary Clinton, who could have made a history as well supposing she won, she would have been the first female presidential nominee of the major party. Senator Obama became the first black president that the Harvard Law Review had and as senator, he was the fifth black in the US history.

With the turning points that evening, Senator Clinton did not exit the political race saying that, “This has been a long campaign, and I will be making no decision tonight,” which added excitement to the cheering crowd.

Senator Obama had a rally at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Minnesota, where he announced, "Tonight, I can stand before you and say that I will be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States.". The 46-year old senator will be one of the youngest presidents in the US if elected.
