Barack Obama (in case you hadn’t heard) clinched the nomination last night and acknowledged it with a speech to his supporters. Meanwhile, Hillary, in NY, spoke to her stalwarts and laid the groundwork for her exit. In a bizarre and self-destructive juxtaposition, McCain also gave a speech.

Pia Sundhage has named her 22-woman roster for the Peace Queen Cup. Defender Ali Krieger is on the roster but won’t travel to Korea as she’s returning to Germany to finish her club season for FFC Frankfurt.

Aly Wagner, trying to make it back from injuries, will be there. Among those not making the cut (and somewhat of a surprise to me) was Stephanie Cox.
