By my count, roughly 100K more people turned out to vote in the Democratic primary than in the Republican primary in South freaking Carolina. That's huge. This is a state that has been reliably Republican since the very beginnings of the Southern realignment in the 60's. What are people's takes on this?
I for one just hope that we Dems don't screw this up. I think the fight between Hillary and Obama will, in the end, be good for the party as both candidates will be more ready for the Rethugs, who are going to pull out all the knives once we get our nominee. However, I just hope it doesn't go overboard and that we unite around our nominee once we have one and put our differences aside. I am a big Obama supporter and have been doing some work for the campaign. I am hearing from a few Obama supporters that they won't vote for Hillary if she wins -- I take this as BS and that these people will heal in 9 months or so and vote for HIllary if she gets the nomination, but still, let's keep this DemMementum with us. This is huge.
What do people think?
