...And That's a Wrap!

Clinton finally throws in the towel

It's finally official: Barack Obama and John McCain will face off against each other in the 2008 Presidential Election.

After a week of speculation, expectation and secret meetings, Hillary Clinton has finally announced her withdrawal from the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination, and offered Obama her unqualified support.

"The way to accomplish our goals is to do all we can do elect Barack Obama the next president of the United States," she announced. "I endorse him and throw my full support behind him."

And while the agreements stemming from the Obama/Clinton meeting -- rumoured to be anything from a Clinton Vice Presidential bid to numerous policy platform planks -- continue to remain secret, there's no question that many Democrats are finally feeling secure enough to look ahead to John McCain.

The party has its own challenges to deal with -- ranging from fundraising issues to policy issues -- but Barack Obama can still win this race if he plays his cards right.
