Obama Set To Claim Victory

Obama will claim the Democrats' nomination and bring the long and divisive primary fight to an end today, after the last two primary contests are held in Montana and South Dakota.

James Clyburn, House majority whip and the top-ranking African-American in Congress will endorse Obama today.

Superdelegates will rally around Obama. As many as 34 of the undeclared superdelegates in the House will endorse Obama by Wednesday. Eighteen of those 34 members Congress will do so before the vote counting ends in South Dakota and Montana.

Most of the remaining 17 uncommitted Democratic senators will endorse Obama.

The 11 governors supporting Hillary are "set to sell switch to Obama."

Even Bill Clinton admits it:

This may be the last day I’m ever involved in a campaign of this kind. I thought I was out of politics, til Hillary decided to run. But it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to go around and campaign for her for President.
