Obama shines

Barack Obama won a resounding victory yesterday in South Carolina.

His victory speech is definitely worth watching.

The exit polls from the race are even more telling. The key highlight is that white voters split 40% Edwards, 36% Clinton, 24% Obama, meaning that Clinton only bested Obama 60%-40% among white voters for supported either one of them.

Also, Caroline Kennedy endorses Obama as the candidate most like her father out of any in the last 40 years. This is as close to getting an endorsement from JFK himself as Obama will ever get.

Finally, the Philadelphia Inquirer joins other local papers in endorsing Obama.

Now it's time to wait for the polls over the next week to show how this momentum for Obama will affect the 2/5 primaries.
