    Democratic hopeful Barack Obama has paid tribute to Hillary Clinton for her "valiant campaign" to become the party nominee for US president.
    He said his former rival had "shattered barriers on behalf of my daughters and women everywhere".
    The praise came after Mrs Clinton formally abandoned her bid for the nomination at a rally in Washington.
    She said Mr Obama had proved his "grace and grit", and she urged her supporters to put their energy into electing him.
    Mr Obama is expected to face the Republican presumptive nominee, John McCain, in November's presidential election.
    In a statement, Mr Obama said he was "thrilled" to have Mrs Clinton's endorsement.

    So who will win November's presidential election.

    Barack Obama V John McCain

    I think John McCain as all Americans love a war hero.

    I think McCain will win as well, given Americans and their obsession with wars.

    But then again, at the beginning of the race, everyone was expecting a Clinton V Guliani contest, those two contenders are nowhere to be seen now.

    Obama the underdog may upset the odds one more.

    John McCain and Obama are technically the "Presumptive" candidates. Meaning either party could choose someone else at their convention. I'm pretty sure the democrats won't choose someone other than Obama. But... as for the republicans you never know, supposedly 60% - 70% of the people that will be at the republican convention are backing Ron Paul. It would be crazy if they picked him instead of McCain... but I know it's a long shot. If that does happen I so would go for Ron Paul over Obama any day.
