Barack Obama’s name will appear on ballots across the nation in November. Delegates attending the Democratic National Convention in Denver have nominated Obama for president, the first black American to bare the presidential nomination of a major party. It came after a partial roll-call vote that was ended by former rival Hillary Clinton. She asked convention delegates to declare Obama the nominee by acclamation. Then the state roll call continued. Senator Ben Nelson took to the micophone to cast the Nebraska delgates selection.
“Nebraska proudly casts three votes for Senator Clinton and 28 votes for the next President of the United States, Barack Obama!”.
Obama’s formal acceptance is at Mile High football stadium. Some 75,000 people could attend.
