Two versions of Obama’s South Carolina victory speech have now been watched on Youtube a combined total of almost 85,000 times. That’s 85,000 views in less than 24 hours. Heck, it’s been less than 17 hours.
That means people either rushed online to rewatch a speech they loved or jumped online to catch a speech they missed. Either way, when was the last time a political speech garnered such an extended audience so quickly?
