Obama Wins South Carolina

Barack Obama won the democratic primary Saturday in South Carolina.

Hillary Rodham Clinton came in second, with former North Carolina Senator John Edwards in third.

Despite the loss in a state he won in the last presidential election primary season, Edwards say he plans to stay in the race.

Saturday's primary was one for the record books. Interviews showed about half the voters were black. MSNBC.com is reporting four out of five of them supported Obama.

The campaigns now escalate even more, as voters in Tennessee and several other states will cast their ballots in the first week of February.

    I've read a lot into Obama's history and his stance on the issues. I really find him inspiring and I feel we would very fortunate to have him as our next president. He is a brilliant man.

    So why is it when Latinos voted solidly for Clinton the press and Obama implied that it was racist? Why is it that when white women voted for Clinton in NH the press and Obama shouted "Tom Bradley"? I ask because blacks voting along racial lines does not seem to be so bad, according to the media and Obama...
