BARACK OBAMA NOMINATED FOR PRESIDENT
Barack Obama wins Democratic Party's presidential nomination after Hillary Clinton's motion on the convention floor today. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton asked to cut the roll call short saying, "With eyes firmly fixed on the future, and in the spirit of unity with the goal of victory, with faith in our party and our country, let's declare together with one voice right here, right now that Barack Obama is our candidate and he will be our president," she said. Delegates then affirmed Obama as their choice with cheers. While most delegates cast their votes for Obama, some were voting for Clinton. It was announced that Barack Obama accepts the nomination, but he will formally accept tomorrow night.
