Obama wins Alabama!

Did anyone else feel that seismic shift last night.  I live here in Alabama and I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that someone whose father was African, a fact which still gets you ridiculed in some circles, won the Democratic primary in, of all places Alabama.

The fact is after attending the 11,000 strong rally for Obama a couple of weeks ago in Birmingham I was filled with cautious optimism, but this was even more than I could have imagined.
