BREAKING, LIVE from Denver: Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee!

It's official: After an incredibly long nominating season, Senator Barack Obama is the Democratic Party's nominee for President of the United States.

In an incredible show of party unity, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking for the New York delegation, moved that the convention suspend the rules and select Barack Obama as the party's nominee via voice vote, or acclamation.

The motion carried easily and was immediately adopted, putting an end to the roll call vote and slamming the door shut on the traditional media's Clinton/Obama narrative of campaign conflict.

Moments later, Speaker Pelosi announced that Barack Obama accepted the party's nomination and would formally do so at Invesco Field Thursday night.

Bill Clinton and Joe Biden are scheduled to address the Convention during primetime tonight. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, who heads his caucus' campaign commitee, is currently explaining the importance of bolstering the Democratic majority in the United States Senate.
