NEW YORK (CNN) – Sen. Barack Obama has clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, CNN projects as polls in the South Dakota primary closed at 9 p.m. ET.
CNN still has not projected a winner in the South Dakota primary, but based on exit polls and raw vote estimates the Illinois senator will receive at least five pledged delegates from this primary, enough to put him over the top. CNN also estimates that rival Hillary Clinton will receive at least five delegates from the South Dakota primary.

Remember they both stand for the same ideals!!!
let go of the anger and vote for Dems bc MCBush is just more of the same
Wonderful history has been made tonight. i am proud to see America has grown much in five decades, but we have further to go. I am an Obama supporter through and through. Let's just hope Obama plays it smart and keeps the Clintons far, far away from his administration.
This Democrat vote goes to McCain. At least we know who he is.
If God be for us, who can be against us.
McCane, Resist not the will of God. It has been ordained that its Obama time.
I loved Tailor's comment. A vote for McCain by a bitter Clinton supporter is a wasted vote for another four years of Bush. Time to get behind our candidate and take back our country, and restore the world's view of the American ideal. GoBama.
Yes America Can!!!!!!!!!!
As someone from another country looking in, I am so proud of Obama and the choice America has made during this nominating process......as a young white woman I am so proud of the history made tonight.
Now on to the presidency....President Obama 2008!!!!!!
