Obama Sweeps DC, MD and VA

It’s a happy day today in DC for Barack Obama supporters.  That’s 8 wins, large margins and key states.  He faces Hillary’s history and support within Hispanic voters who classically don’t vote for African American leaders.  It will be interesting to see if there is an effect from all of the displaced Katrina voters who are now registered in Texas.   In VA, he won among white men and cut into her lead with white women.  This could be the same case in Ohio.  I smell a Obama/McCain race.  The media was acting like Hillary was a bystander last night.

I was awesome to be in DC and MD last night.  Obama supporters were at the metro stations.  I saw a lot of young African Americans…not even of voting age…very excited coming off the train and seeing the supporters.  They were yelling “Obama in O8!”  I was yelling too.  It was great.
