Barack Obama Wins South Carolina Democratic Primary

If you read the title of this entry, then you pretty much got the entire story. Did Obama get a boost from my spiel highlighting that cool people could have the name Hussein, too, and such a name isn't exclusive to totalitarian dictators? Probably not, as only a few people Dugg the story on Digg. Did Dennis Kucinich's fans in South Carolina take the dropped-out candidate's strategy to heart: If they couldn't vote for Dennis, they should vote for Barack? Who knows...

As for me, I had way too much fun on this pre-rainy Saturday that I actually forgot that the long awaited Democratic state primary came and went today. I heard a news blurb a few minutes ago and said, "Oh yeah, it was the South Carolina Democratic Primary today." With basically neither a Democrat nor Republican frontrunner, we all just have to wait and see.

In any case, congratulations to Senator Obama - first the senate seat, then the Grammy in 2006, and now he's on a trajectory that could very well give him the Democratic Party nomination for the Presidency. He must be walking on air, or better - walking on sunshine:

And don't it feel good? The picture context says Obama's getting a rebound, but it really looks like he's levitating and the people around him are about to crap their pants...but just a little.
