On the Democratic side, NBC's Bob Faw traveled to South Carolina where the state "is abuzz" with its biggest sports stadium sold out in advance of the "Oprah and Obama" rally where TV daytime talkshow host Winfrey will stump for fellow Chicagoan Barack. Even with all that cheering for a pair of African-Americans, Faw pointed out that a visit to "just about any roadhouse" reveals "how the old South struggles with the new." The vox pop comment was unequivocal. "He is not going to win." "Because he is black?" "Yes. That is a fact. A black man or woman is not going to win." The South Carolina primary, Faw anticipated, will be "a referendum, of sorts, on how much this state is still shackled to its Jim Crow past."
