Hillary Clinton Calls Obama to Offer Congratulations
By Anne E. Kornblut
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton called Sen. Barack Obama at around 11:30 p.m., offering her congratulations and her condolences on the loss of his grandmother, a Clinton spokesman said. Obama thanked her for her help, and said he looked forward to speaking to her and her husband soon.
Clinton was among the first to release a statement upon Obama's victory.
"Tonight, we are celebrating an historic victory for the American people. This was a long and hard fought campaign but the result was well worth the wait," she said.
