Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is offering congratulations to Barack Obama in clinching the Democratic Presidential nomination. Nelson stated that he anticipated Obama’s success and the way the Illinois Senator handled the situation last night was appropriate. Nelson did say that both he and Senator Hillary Clinton fought a hard fight and now it is time for her to exit the race graciously.
Senator Clinton has mentioned to those within the party that she would be interested in becoming Obama’s running mate if it would help the Democratic Party win the White House. Senator Nelson does not believe that will happen.
