Obama became the party's first African-American nominee for President. Senator Joe Biden of Delaware was nominated for Vice President. Obama officially received the nomination for President on August 27, when his former opponent, U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton of New York, interrupted the official roll call to move that Obama be selected by acclamation. U.S. Senator Joe Biden of Delaware accepted the nomination for Vice President on the same night. Obama accepted his nomination the following night in a speech at INVESCO Field before a record-setting crowd of 84,000 people in attendance. (en)
  • La Convención Nacional Demócrata de 2008 fue la convención de nominación presidencial de los Estados Unidos del Partido Demócrata. Se llevó a cabo entre el lunes 25 de agosto y el jueves 28 de agosto de 2008, en Denver, estado de Colorado. (La Convención Nacional Republicana de 2008 dio comienzo cuatro días después, en St. Paul, Minnesota). Esta es la fecha más tardía en que se efectuó la convención Demócrata. Históricamente, cuando el partido Republicano ocupa la presidencia del país, los Demócratas hacen su convención en julio, y vice versa. Según el Comité Nacional Demócrata, se escogió la semana del 25 de agosto para que tuviera lugar después de finalizados los Juegos Olímpicos de Pekín 2008 y para "maximizar el momentum para la fórmula presidencial Demócrata en los meses finales de la elección presidencial". Una lista detallada de los candidatos puede ser encontrada en Candidatos Demócratas a la presidencia 2008. Una descripción del proceso de nominación puede ser encontrada en Primarias presidenciales del partido Demócrata de 2008. (es)
