Democratic Nomination Won, Obama Tries To Make Peace with Clinton

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A spokesman for Barack Obama says "there is no deal in the works" to make Hillary Rodham Clinton his running mate heading into the fall campaign with Republican John McCain.

Obama last night gained the delegates needed to clinch the Democratic nomination, although Clinton has yet to acknowledge the Illinois senator's victory.

Today, Obama's camp is making an effort to mend fences.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs says once the dust settles, Obama will meet with Clinton. He credits the New York senator and former first lady with garnering a lot of votes during the primaries, and says "we want to make sure that we're appealing to her voters."

Both candidates are in Washington today addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
