Barack Obama Wins South Carolina

January 27, 2008 at 8:58 am 1 comment

Its safe to say that Barack Obama dominated in South Carolina beating Hillary Clinton 55% to 27%. It was an amazing display that makes the race for the Democratic nomination tighter than ever and shows that eschewing the usual slash and burn politics for a politics of unity and common purpose can be successful.

Barack is still going to face a big challenge taking on the Clinton Machine composed of the tag team of Bill and Hillary, their army of rich and powerful surrogates and their subtle and not so subtle use of the race card. But, then its never been easy to fight for what’s right, to fight for American values, to fight for all Americans across race, class, gender and sexual orientation.

On to Super Tuesday!

    Polls had Barack only carrying 10% of the white vote in South Carolina and 50% of the African American vote.

    But a funny thing happened on the way to victory.

    The longer HillBilly remained in the Palmetto state stirring up race-based politics, Barack’s polls began to climb and the Borg Queen’s began to tank.

    The post-election polls showed Barack carried 81% of African American voters and 25% of white voters. This is a stunning turn around.

    Now, onward to Missouri, Tennessee and Florida and then Super Tuesday.
