The poster jumped based on early returns and called it for Hillary in a blowout. As returns came in, Obama cut into her lead and while he still lost, it was by a very narrow margin in a state most thought Hillary would win big. Obama also won decisively in NC that night despite concerns over Rev. Wright.

That was the night Tim Russert went on air and declared Obama the Democratic nominee lol
