    AP tally: Obama clinches Democratic nomination

    Eds: APNewsNow; Will be led.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Barack Obama has effectively clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, based on an Associated Press tally of convention delegates.

    The tally put Obama over the top Tuesday, ahead of the results from the day's final primaries in Montana and South Dakota. The Illinois senator becomes the first black candidate ever to lead his party into a fall campaign for the White House. Obama outlasted former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in a historic contest and now faces Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona for the presidency.

    You should talk to Zeke. He was looking for suggestions last night to prepare for tonight.

    Different situation. I'm a disillusioned conservative who (right now) could live with either McCain or Obama. I'm just celebrating Clinton Inc. getting its final reward.

    I have been informed that Guinness will be the official drink of the Obama nomination. Head to the store now.

    I'm trying to rustle up one bottle of Leinies Original to toast Mo Udall and Fenian.

    A Chicago boy? I'd guess Miller Lite. Yuck.

    If Obama cracks a Natty Light, he's got the union vote.
