Jefferson-Jackson update

Barack Obama is taking the podium at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Richmond, Va., where Hillary Clinton spoke about two hours ago. The crowd had a polite and even slightly enthusiastic reception for her. But ... they are going crazy for Obama.

CNN's Candy Crowley, reporting live from the dinner, is basically shouting into the microphone; still, she is barely audible.

This crowd is whipped up, and it's all because of Obama.

**Update: Obama has also been called as the winner of the contest in the USVI. I wonder if he'll plan a thank-you trip there ...?
