It's almost official: Obama is the nominee

So says the Associated Press, among others. Now the race changes in two respects. First, we see how Obama runs against John McCain. Second, we see how Hillary Clinton works to keep herself in the spotlight and keep ahold of power, without the delegate count. Will she find a way to wheedle her way into an Obama cabinet? Will she follow her husband's example of refusing to leave the spotlight? Or will she step back, and become the "loyal opposition" within her own party?

Somehow, I suspect the press will be complicit in any attempt to keep the Clintons front and center. Otherwise, they won't have much to talk about in July.
