Obama wins NC..

I don't think anyone will be surprised by results in NC. What was interesting was Obama's speech. If you didn't see it, you should.

He spent about 2 minutes talking about NC and then went on for 25 minutes as if he was the nominee.

He even went as far as to call North Carolina a swing state in November if he was the nominee. History will have a say in that. NC hasn't picked a Democrat since 1976.

NC not voting for a Democrat presidential candidate since 1976 was a topic Jimmy Carter brought up in Raleigh last week, ironically when he was trying to sell his new book.

I say ironically because Carter blamed racism for it, thus unfairly insulting a state full of potential patrons -- who might remember that only one Democrat had won the nation, let alone NC, since 1976.
