(CNN) - Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama called Republican John McCain at 8:30 CST from his hotel in San Antonio, Texas. He congratulated the Arizona senator on his apparent victory in the GOP contest, and told him he looks forward to running against him in the fall.

UPDATE: CNN's Candy Crowley and Dana Bash report that Hillary Clinton also called John McCain Tuesday night to offer congratulations on his win.
I hope Obama is talking about a foot race in the park. Hillary will win.
In your dreams Obama.
--I do not need your congratulations! You should clean up your house first –
I support Hillary, but I am happy that Obama called. I think he is a bit cocky with the "look forward to running against you" comment. He has not won yet 🙂
Mccain be afriad of Obama in Nov.
Go Obama!!!! Very Presidential!!
Running against him in the fall indeed. Let's LOCK UP this nomination soon!
A little premature!!!!
I don't know anything weirder than Obama calling to congratulate McCain?! Obama just needs to get off his high horse acting like he's gonna be the Dem. nominee!
Thanks Obama...you are a real piece of work. Laugh it up now because I am a life-long Democrat and I will be either voting for McCain this fall OR writing in Hillary Clinton on my precious Los Angeles ballot and sorry to tell you this but I think a lot of us will be.
Hillary can't win if Dem's follow with supporting the delgate with most delegate count!!!
Do your Math people.
A little presumptuous if you ask me... It isn't over for Clinton!
Such negativity from Clinton and her followers...it's disgusting!!
(It's amazing how Hillary's folks have a tendency to scream with the caps on – we can read and not "delusional", no need for the caps)
Getting a little ahead of himself isn't he? This guy better wake up and realize he has to win the nomination first. And wait till the Republicans start tearing him apart on his lack of knowledge on foreign affairs, and everything else. He thinks Hillary has gotten a little negative? He ain't seen nothin yet!!!!!!!
Yes, Jen. Be a bitter person, that's very adult of you...
Sounds pretty arrogant to me!
Boo Hoo Jen, we'll try to survive without your vote. lol.
Barack, we love that you are proper decorum and running a clean campaign. Don't let Hillary & co. get you down. You are the best!!!
Barack Obama is looking more & more like a true gentleman.
Nonetheless, I a veteran want in the White House one who has worn Uncle Sam's uniform. This nation will be better served with John McCain as President than Barack Obama.
hmm Obama IF you get the dem nod I hope you don't think it will be easy to beat McCain. Giving him congrats is one thing, but don't expect him to go easy on you even if you pull out his chair in a debate.
Obama is always a gentleman.
Hillary on the other hand, never gives thanks to her supporters for their hard work in allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll those states that she has lost. Hmmm?
Go Senator Obama go! Obama vs. McCain will be a great presidential race. I believe Obama has a great chance of winning since he appeals to many Americans.
Hillary will never be elected president. If she somehow manages to get the nomination, enjoy watching her crash and burn in the fall.
Hillary supporters–Why do you think Rush Limbaigh wanted Republicans to vote for Hillary? Because she is beatable. Also I fear she will win because she is willing to do anything and go so negative and Obama is too good to stoop that low.
