South Carolina

Obama won a victory in South Carolina he needed and expected.

But, I have to confess that his passive aggresive attacks on Hillary are annoying - conducting business as usual while condemning business as usual.

For example, from his victory speech [see at http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/01/26/obama.transcript/?iref=hpmostpop]:


"......And in nine days, in nine short days, nearly half the nation will have the chance to join us in saying that we are tired of business as usual in Washington. We are hungry for change and we are ready to believe again.....

...It's a status quo that extends beyond any particular party and right now that status quo is fighting back with everything it's got, with the same old tactics that divide and distract us from solving the problems people face, whether those problems are health care that folks can't afford or a mortgage they cannot pay....

...So this will not be easy. Make no mistake about what we're up against. We're up against the belief that it's all right for lobbyists to dominate our government, that they are just part of the system in Washington...."

Neat trick. Here's hoping voters will see through the denial.

My wife is Russian and his speech reminded her of a communist rally exhorting the troops to attack something.

It's a long campaign and it is not over.
