Obama's victory speech excoriated the Clintonistas "dirty politics" yet stayed above the fray by focusing on his main campaign themes of hope and making the sacrifices necessary for change. Excerpts from Obama's speech include:
"Tonight, the cynics who believed that what began in the snows of Iowa was just an illusion were told a different story by the good people of South Carolina."
"I did not travel around this state over the last year and see a white South Carolina or a black South Carolina. I saw South Carolina."
"The choice in this election is not between regions or religions or genders. It's not about rich versus poor; young versus old; and it is not about black versus white. It's about the past versus the future."

plez sez: it is great to see Obama back in the driver's seat in the democratic race, i feel he will be the most formidable opponent for the republicans come november. hill & bill engender too much hate from the republicans who will surely come out in droves to keep them from returning to the white house... and their lack of decorum over the past couple of weeks (dredging up racial politics hell bent on dividing the Black community) may cause many Black voters to skip the general election in november if she is the democratic nominee (plezWorld will NOT be voting for hillary clinton in november).
i plan to vote early in georgia's primary (i'll probably go out to vote on monday morning)... we are part of super tuesday on february 5th. i encourage all
plezWorld is willing to make the necessary sacrifices to make change in this country!
