Going into the SC Democratic Primary Obama has 38 delegates, Clinton has 36 and Edwards has 18. It takes 2,025 for Nomination. The media's spin that the Democratic Nomination is already determined is a stretch. Thus far only 92 delegates (combined) are committed. South Carolina offers 45 Democratic National Convention delegates. The decision on who the President and Vice President will be is still to be determined.
On the Republican side, 1,191 delegates are needed for Nomination.
The Republicans have already held their SC Primary. Thus far the delegate count is
Romney 66, McCain 38, Huckabee 26, Thompson (out) 8, Paul 6, Giuliani 1, Hunter 1 (out).
