Obama's win drives fundraising spike

Matthew Mosk and Jose Antonio Vargas at the Washington Post had an interesting article last night on the unbelievable fundraising spike that followed Obama's win in South Carolina.

A source inside the Obama campaign says the candidate's web site has seen one of its best hours tonight, raising $525,000 in one hour. A senior aide inside the Obama campaign said the candidate's site saw its "highest peak" tonight in both online donations and traffic, "bigger than after Iowa, bigger than after New Hampshire."
By my math, that comes out to $8,750 a minute.
