Democrats Formally Nominate Obama

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) officially secured his party’s presidential nomination a short time ago, after his onetime rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) asked on the convention floor that his nomination be approved by acclamation. The move ends a state-by-state roll-call vote for the party’s presidential nominee.
