Obama Wins Georgia

Riding a massive margin of support from the black community, Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) claimed the first major victory of the night -- winning Georgia by a wide margin over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The Peach State was long considered strong territory for Obama given the state's large African American community and the Illinois senator's dominance among that key voting bloc in earlier contests.

As we wrote earlier, a quick call -- as this was -- is good news for Obama. Georgia is a state he had to have. He's got it.

Feel free to use the comments section below to offer your own thoughts on what Obama's win in Georgia means for the night ahead.
