O-ba-ma = Oh so close.

The New York Times reports:

Senator Barack Obama is poised to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday night as he received support from a steady stream of prominent party officials, signaling that the grueling primary battle with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is coming to a close.

….

In a speech in New Orleans, Senator John McCain acknowledged Mr. Obama as his certain opponent in November, immediately launching an attack on the Illinois senator’s policies while praising Mrs. Clinton for her “tenacity and courage.”

At Mr. Obama’s headquarters in Chicago, every time a new endorsement was announced, campaign workers sounded a round of applause.

VP Clinton? It seems Hillary would not object to the idea:

Meanwhile, Mrs. Clinton signaled earlier Tuesday that she may be open to pursuing the No. 2 spot on a Democratic ticket.

Asked on a conference call Tuesday if she would be open to joining a ticket with Mr. Obama, the New York senator said she would do whatever she could — including a vice presidential bid — to help Democrats win the White House.

    I don’t get it, it seems like a very logical thing to me, to have Hillary as Vice Pres.She obviously a pretty strong Democratic candidate and a combo Obama-Clinton ticket would be a double-whammy for historical coolness.Richardson or Edwards as VP?? ew.my impression is that the VP has very few actual responsibilities, and God forbid if the VP had to take over executive duties for any reason, I and many others would be happy with Clinton.I’m pulling for her as VP but somehow I don’t think it’ll happen.

    ughh I would hate a Hillary VP. some people love the idea of OBAMA and CLINTON…TOGETHER! but it wouldn’t be anything like it sounds. Hillary wouldn’t be able to put aside the bitterness she feels for him and Barack just doesn’t agree with her on many fronts. I would love to see Richardson or even Edwards as his VP.

    did anyone see the speeches Clinton and Obama gave tonight? Clinton pretty much neglected to mention that Obama won and kept going on about how she owns the votes of 18 million people. Obama, on the other hand, classily acknowledged Clinton’s strengths without seeming at all like a pushover, and I think really proved that he is the man to beat in this election.

    Clinton has not earned a place on the ticket. She should campaign for the party that she has been working so hard to ruin.

    I think if an Obama/Clinton ticket succeeded, I would be unable to keep myself from weeping with joy.
