Yes he did

Barack Obama

The final primaries of the US Presidential nominating process took place yesterday and Barack Obama secured the delegates he needed to claim victory over Hillary Clinton and line up a battle against John McCain for the election in November.

While Hillary won in South Dakota an expected win for Obama in Montana and a flurry of SuperDelegate endorsements, including former President Jimmy Carter, pushed him over the top making him the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party as he stated in his speech in St. Paul.

Attention will now turn to speculation about the potential Vice Presidential running mates for Obama and McCain, how the campaign will shape up now that there is a nominee for both the major parties and for us at Intute, how this will play out online.
