Awaiting Results: Obama Scores South Carolina

The polls just closed, but CNN is projecting that Obama is the winner in South Carolina, the South's first primary.

Obama won, nabbing the trophy and subsequent momentum, right on the heels of a week of tough fighting in South Carolina with every member of the hopeful First Families participating.

The win also means that there's still a tight race heading in to Super Tuesday on February 5th. Are you excited to keep this contest alive? Are you glad Obama won?

In other news, John McCain has just received the endorsement of the Governor of Florida. The Florida Republican primary is Tuesday.

The number that turned out just to vote for Obama alone, was close to the number of people that collectivly voted (meaning all blue votes) in the last primary of 2004!!

What is so great about this primary is this: the number of democrats that turned out was far more than at the Republican primary...and South Carolina usually votes Republican. Could Obama turn a red state blue?

That'smajor, with all respect, may I ask what you don't like about Obama versus Hilary? Just out of curiosity, I am not trying to start a fight. ;)

My eyes were glued to the t.v. during his incredible speech. Now he gained the endorsement of JFK's daughter. I am so pleased. I'm with Barack all the way.

I hardly got to sleep last night, my head was totally up and running for hours over this! The Obama that spoke last night is the leader that will take the country by storm, even when the polls favor the Clintons; I believe we can do this!! In the end it will be a choice over leadership qualities, and I think a positive and optimistic campaign will out shine and out weigh the cynical and dirty one.

I seem to stand alone, but I love Hillary and I believe she is the best candidate this country has seen in a very long time. I am not a big fan of Obama so this is not the best of news for me... Oh well, gotta move on. Hillary '08!!

Again...Clinton = evil. Four years of evil in OUR White House? Please people, wake up. I look forward to a Republican kicking her butt in the general election.

I'm with you, Jillness. Totally agree with your 1st comment. He has so much integrity, when others have been attacking him left and right. He IS very wise and a great role model. He'd be the best thing to happen to this country in a LONG time. Funny how he completely decimated Hilary. I had a lot of respect for her but she plays a really dirty game and would do just about ANYTHING to win. Team Obama!

Yes, and this is pretty big because they (she and her late mother) has very close ties to the Clintons. Which is why it is a big deal to Obama, and I can't wait to read the article tomorrow!

Hillarys speech was really weak, and she tried going soft again, though at this point it kind of seems robotic. Obama's speech was amazing, I'm so glad he is now taking the high road. His rhetoric is superior to any politician since JFK when he shines like today.

I'm happy! Citizen, I was reading that Clinton is trying to get Michigan and Florida delegates to the DNC...how can she do that? And why did push their elections up, knowing the consequences? For the media attention?
