One big break for Obama came in South Carolina from an unlikely source: former President Clinton, who soured some voters on the Clintons and their combative style of politics by injecting race into the campaign, underlining Obamas promise to bring a fresh approach to Washington. In their private calculations, the Obama camp expected their candidate to end Super Tuesday trailing Clinton by about 100 elected delegates. Instead, he won 13 of the 23 states and finished with a lead of 30 elected delegates.
