MICKEY KAUS: "Now that Bill Clinton has explicitly belittled Obama's South Carolina victory by comparing it to Jesse Jackson's, how does Obama's share of the white vote compare with Jackson's in 1988?"

UPDATE: More here: "The determining factor in how people voted was race. Not that this is a good thing — and really, I can't see how any liberal would prefer Clinton to Obama — but that's the way it went down today in South Carolina among Democratic voters."

MORE: Obama in a Rout: "Clearly, Edwards needs to remain in the race so his message will be heard."

Meanwhile, some Democratic pundits have figured things out.

And Dave Kopel says that Barack Obama sounds like a President.

And Mark Steyn thinks Obama is "Kennedyesque."
