Tonight is a History Making Night

Sen. Barck Obama, presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States
Barack Obama, an African American, became the nominee of a major political party in America. Tonight I have been a witness to history.

Truly, the torch in America has been passed to a new generation.

Sen. Obama made a great speech to an jam-packed auditorium in St. Paul, Minnesota, the site of this year's Republican nominating convention. Over 17,000 listened to him inside the auditorium and another 15,000 were outside viewing a broadcast of it.
