"Why does this matter?" you may ask. Well, Obama's gotten a quarter of the white male vote in the cracker capital of the world. He withstood a full-on siege of venom and head games from not just Sen. Clinton, but also her husband (you know, the guy who tried to destroy democracy by lying about a blow job yet still remains easily the most popular politician in America).
Not only does this set up Obama nicely for the Feb. 5 Super Tuesday phalanx of primaries, it also quiets those mutterings under the breath by many Democrats who aren't sure white guys would support a brother for president.
I still support John Edwards for now, but I'm planning to give Obama a second look in the coming week. I think you should as well because there's no one on the GOP side who can win anywhere other than Utah and Indiana in a general election.
In short, the Senator from the Land of Lincoln is starting to look like our 44th President.
