Obama crushes Clinton in South Carolina

According to ABC News, Barark Obama crushed Hillary Rodham Clinton, with a record breaking heavy voter turnout, by a whopping 55% to 27%, with John "Silky Pony" Edwards trailing in his home state democrat primary with a pathetic 18%.

HRC can thank her husband Bill's embarrassing behavior for a large part of her crushing defeat.
Billy Jeff is downplaying Hillary's defeat by playing the race card, yet again.

Another reporter asked what it said about Obama that it “took two people to beat him.” Clinton again passed. “That’s’ just bait, too. Jesse Jackson won South Carolina twice, in ‘84 and ‘88. And he ran a good campaign. Senator Obama’s run a good campaign here, he’s run a good campaign everywhere.”

The reference to Jackson seemed a way to downplay today’s result in a state where a majority of voters are African American.

Michelle Malkin points out that some of the poll numbers are really damaging to HRC.
Black women, who she was hoping would vote with their gender identity, voted for Obama 82-17. Obama also beat HRC in getting the votes of women overall, 61% to 39%.
Even Edwards beat HRC among white voters 39% to 36%.

In all, an embarrassing and crushing defeat for Hillary Rodham Clinton and Billy Jeff Clinton. One they will try to spin as a fluke caused by black voters daring to leave the Clinton plantation.
