Obama wins in South Carolina

Inspite of the entire billary machine, Obama wins. It looks like billary might be second or third.
Obama won a massive majority of black votes. bill has not been an asset for billary.
The billary surrogates seem to have annoyed the electorate. Guess billary was not the first black president.
I have to say that Obama seems to be a more decent person than billary. billary says they went too far.

Obama is still in the game but this should have been an easy victory for him. Since the establishment wants Hillary I'm hoping that Obama can make it a tight race. (real conservative)

The Clintstones have been preparing for the SC defeat. Slick was blaming the black vote even before Hillary's loss:

"They are getting votes, to be sure, because of their race or gender — that's why people tell me Hillary doesn't have a chance of winning here."

According to US pundit Dick Morris, their strategy is to drive the white vote to Hillary:

"If Hillary loses South Carolina and the defeat serves to demonstrate Obama’s ability to attract a bloc vote among black Democrats, the message will go out loud and clear to white voters that this is a racial fight. It’s one thing for polls to show, as they now do, that Obama beats Hillary among African-Americans by better than 4-to-1 and Hillary carries whites by almost 2-to-1. But most people don’t read the fine print on the polls. But if blacks deliver South Carolina to Obama, everybody will know that they are bloc-voting. That will trigger a massive white backlash against Obama and will drive white voters to Hillary Clinton."

"But don’t look for them to walk away from South Carolina. Their love needs to appear to have been unrequited by the black community for their rejection to seem so unfair that it triggers a white backlash.And since the next round consists of all the important and big states, polarizing the contest into whites versus blacks will work just fine for Hillary."

Expect more of the same "good-cop, bad-cop" approach from the tag team: more moist eyes from Hillary about her "devotion and love" for both blacks and all Americans: "It's not about me, it's about...America...." (voice cracking) coupled with some shameful finger-pointing by Slick, all very subtly choreographed to extract maximum sympathy and the backlash vote.
