Obama, Yo Mama!!

Barack O'Bama did his thing in South Carolina. Barack Obama routed Hillary Rodham Clinton in the racially charged South Carolina primary Saturday night, regaining campaign momentum in the prelude to a Feb. 5 coast-to-coast competition for more than 1,600 Democratic National Convention delegates.

Barack Obama won by a landslide in South Carolina tonight, moving into a strong position ahead of the Democrats' multi-state contest on February 5.

With more than 95% of the results in, Obama far exceeded expectations, taking twice as many votes as Hillary Clinton, 55% to 26%. It was the first primary when the winner has gotten more than 50% of the vote.

African-Americans overwhelmingly backed Barack Obama's hopeful promise Saturday, turning out in droves in South Carolina to endorse him as the Democratic nominee after a bitter campaign that highlighted the racial divide

Obama "We won in Iowa, that's 94 per cent white," he said on Saturday, and "practically tied" with Clinton in New Hampshire. He is optimistic for the coming primaries.

Well, I hope that the next round of debates will be less personal and focus more on the issues. This race should not be about color but about who is going to best represent the country
