    Joe Biden clinches the nomination

    As reported by FOX News:
    Biden clinches Democratic presidential nomination with latest delegate haul
    Forget saying "presumptive."

    Joe Biden is now the Democratic presidential nominee, after reaching the threshold of 1,991 pledged delegates needed to clinch his party’s nomination.

    "It was an honor to compete alongside one of the most talented groups of candidates the Democratic party has ever fielded — and I am proud to say that we are going into this general election a united party," Biden said in a statement. "I am going to spend every day between now and November 3rd fighting to earn the votes of Americans all across this great country so that, together, we can win the battle for the soul of this nation, and make sure that as we rebuild our economy, everyone comes along."

    Biden now has 1,993 delegates, according to The Associated Press. There are still contests to come in eight states and three U.S. territories.
    Biden will formally become the party’s standard-bearer when he’s officially nominated in August at the Democratic National Convention.

    Four years ago Hillary Clinton also clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in early June. The former first lady, senator from New York, and secretary of state went over the top on June 6, thanks to a combination of pledged and superdelegates. Sanders – who battled Clinton for the nomination in a bitter and divisive primary process – didn’t endorse his party’s nominee until a month later, at a rally in New Hampshire.

    In reforms made by the Democratic Party as a result of the friction in the 2016 primaries, superdelegates – party officials and Democratic governors, senators, and House members – were stripped of their ability to back a presidential candidate in the first round of convention balloting.
    Yours truly was the Paul Krugman of Biden prognosticators, and I still can hardly believe what I'm seeing. But there it is.

    Who cares. Pretty foregone. He's still a loser.

    Just a broken nominee.

    Probably not as much money for the place where the convention will be held, either.
