Oh well then, I guess the AP has spoken

And we all know that when the AP speaks we can just accept it as reality.

AP tally: Obama clinches Democratic nomination

Off course, this announcement is based on the AP counting super delegates that they have talked to in private who have said they intend to endorse Obama combined with an assumption about how many pledged delegates Obama will win in tonight's final contests. All of these assumptions may be correct, but until they actually happen it hasn't actually happened.

I can understand people wanting this race to be over. But it's embarrassing that so many (here and here) have leapt on this news story as if it is anything more than a news organization wanting to be the first to say "Obama Wins!"

Save the celebration for when it is justified folks. You've waited this long. You can wait a few more hours.
