[MSNBC] There were two true stunners Saturday night: the size of Sen. Barack Obama’s margin of victory over Sen. Hillary Clinton — 28 percentage points — but just as significant this number: Total turnout for Democrats in their primary was greater than the turnout for the Republican primary in this state, which is one of the most loyally Republican in the nation.Can I just say that I get excited at the thought of Michelle Obama as the first lady, she is such a strong, intelligent, and virtuous woman! By any standards...
Four years ago about 293,000 Democrats voted in the state’s primary: Saturday Obama alone got more than that number of votes.
Why did Obama win South Carolina and what does this triumph portend for future contests?
One short answer: He and his campaign staffers worked.
