Good Old Boy #46
While Barack Obama was giving his victory speech, there was a good old boy standing behind him who was wearing a hoodie, cheering along and waving a homemade sign on which was written 'Veterans for Obama'.
I also liked the story of the elderly woman who sent a campaign contribution of $3.01 and a verse of scripture (I bet Peter Hain wishes with hindsight that he'd got that sort of donation).
Also good is this, from the local South Carolina newspaper:
"Barack Obama beat Hillary Clinton so badly in South Carolina it may spawn some new kind of Southern colloquialism. When Clemson spanks an opponent by five touchdowns it will be called an Obama. Fans will taunt the losing team as they walk off the field by making an "O" against their foreheads."
