    Yeah, no kidding. That's awesome. It's an old-fashioned beat-down.

    However, Obama only received 25% of the white vote. He'll have to do better than that.

    But it's 25% of the white votes in a state below the mason-dixon line. pretty impressive.

    Why would you say that.... 25% in a three way race is perfectly exceptable...

    considering the fact that half the white population of SC is still flying rebel flags on the front lawns. Its real impressive

    Don't get me wrong, it was an impressive victory. I'm gunning for Obama but he's trailing in most other polls. That may change of course, but he must do better amongst white voters. Most of the crackers in SC aren't in the Democratic Party anymore. They've migrated to the GOP.

    Also of interest, the only demo Clinton won was the over 65 crowd.

    That's the demo that elects presidents though.

    Hopefully this year will be different.
