Clinton Clinches Democratic Nomination

Hillary Clinton will be the first woman to top the presidential ticket of a major U.S. political party, having captured commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee. She will compete in a three-way race against Republican nominee Donald Trump and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson in the presidential election that will be held this coming November.

Clinton reached the 2,383 delegates needed to become the presumptive Democratic nominee with a decisive victory in Puerto Rico and a burst of last-minute support from party insiders known as superdelegates, defeating a strong challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Sanders’ supporters expressed disappointment that the calls were made before California’s primary and urged the senator to continue on despite the pronouncements.

    Narishkeiten. She hasn’t clinched anything, because superdelegates can change their minds whenever they like. Who knows how many will change their minds between now and the convention? This is just a matter of news sites looking for a flashy headline to get hits, never mind whether it’s true.

    Milhouse is correct but will any of the super delegates change their minds? I voted for Bernie Sanders in the Washington state caucus. What I’m hoping for is that Sanders can win California and keep up his momentum all the way to the convention thereby being in a good position to demand a place at the table and able to influence the party platform. Of course my husband thinks I’m off my rocker LOL! I think he feels I’m against a woman president. That’s not true as I can think of several women pols who I feel would make fine presidents–Hillary Clinton is just not one of them.

    Whatever we think of Trump we MUST make sure he is elected. The main reason for this is that he will get to pick 1-4 members of the Supreme Court.

    Just remember Obama’s anti-Israel policies and just remember what Biden stated that Israel would not have such considerations as in the past. by the way, who was Secretary of State for part of this time when Obama let everyone know he was not happy with Bibi and endorsed a peace plan that was anti-Israel.
