Obama wins

Obama wins. So reports the Associated Press.

The AP tally was based on public commitments from delegates as well as more than a dozen private commitments. It also included a minimum number of delegates Obama was guaranteed even if he lost the final two primaries in South Dakota and Montana later in the day.

The 46-year-old first-term senator will face Sen. John McCain of Arizona in the fall campaign to become the 44th president.

Don't let the fact that Obama's been ahead in the delegate count since February distract you from the enormity of Obama's win. He bested his party's most experienced and powerful political operation.
