Democratic Party Officially Nominates Obama

Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) has been formally nominated by the Democratic Party as their Presidential candidate to stand in the November general election against presumptive Republican nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ). Obama has been the presumptive Democratic nominee since securing a majority of party delegates on June 3, but Democratic National Convention delegates have now made his nomination official.

Senator Obama is joined on the Democratic ticket by Vice Presidential nominee Senator Joe Biden (D-DE), who Obama announced as his VP pick on Saturday.

Obama, who is mixed African- and European-American, is the first biracial major-party Presidential nominee. If-elected, Senator Obama would be the first non-white President.
