“Obama Wins SC ~
Obama Dominates Charged SC Primary
By DAVID ESPO and CHARLES BABINGTON
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – 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.”
Think back, this is where it all REALLY started-to come together-to foretell the history that was about to be made.
There were behind the scenes events, where a former President was put in his place, and told to “chill”, by a South Carolina Congressional Representative. Where “common ordinary folk” (both black and white) expressed their preference for this self-described “skinny black man from Illinois, with the funny name”.
Wyllene went over there to S.C. to do some canvassing and other campaigning stuff. And, where the deal was made for two folk to come and live with us for 10 days leading up to the Super Tuesday elections on Feb. 5th.
Since that time, we’ve been in constant contact with “our Obama kids”, as they travel from state to state, as part of that magnificent ground machine that Obama has built. One of them asked, and we went up to North Carolina, for a week and worked through their election on May 6th. We were part of the team that led that “rout in N.C.”
Since that time, it seems we’ve had 2-3 of the Obama folk living with us, working on the Registration campaign and doing advance work for the Fall Campaign group that will be here soon-after June 15th.
