[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.

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.
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...

In other news, Obama has also picked up the endorsement of John F. Kennedy's daughter, read more here.
