Obama may take SC, not Edwards

You would never know it by the pundits on "Meet the Press" this morning, but Barack Obama spoke to a huge RACIALLY DIVERSE group in Greenville, SC yesterday. I saw the news coverage and the audience was at least as white as black.

3500 crowded into a mall here to hear him speak.


In Greenville, SC, home of Bob Jones University!

Read about it in our Republican (hard) leaning newspaper here, here, and here.

You'll note how hard The Greenville News pushes for school vouchers, which has been roundly voted down by not only the populace of SC, but by the State Legislature. Repeatedly.

Obama is going to hurt Edwards far more than Clinton in SC, unfortunately. I talked to black voters in the first Edwards primary victory and they were all voting for Edwards. I talked to black voters in the Kerry/Edwards election poll lines, they weren't voting for Kerry, they were voting for Edwards.

This doesn't bode well for Edwards.

I am curious to see how all of this plays out. In the end, I will be pretty happy with any of the leading Dem candidates vs. Mitt Romney. If America votes Romney it will be clear that we need more than a miracle to save this place!
