Sarah Dallof reportingUtah Democrats say today's announcement by Hillary Clinton unifies the presidential campaign and brings them one step closer to a victory in November.

As you can imagine, leaders in the Utah Democratic Party have been closely following the race. They say it's sparked interest in their party and in the political process in general.

Now they're looking forward to Sen. Barack Obama starting to debate Sen. John McCain.

Utah Democratic Party Vice Chair Rob Miller disagrees with critics who say Clinton should have dropped out long ago.

"We've seen record numbers of people, especially in Democratic primaries and caucuses, turn out. I think it's given people opportunity to vote in primaries who haven't before, and quite frankly, it's made Barack Obama a stronger campaigner having to go toe-to-toe with Hillary Clinton," Miller said.

Now people wait to see who Obama picks as a running mate. Miller says he fully supports a Clinton-Obama ticket, as well as several other possibilities.
