500,000 New Black Voters in Georgia?

Ambinder, riffing off a NY Times article to the same effect today, points out that there are half a million unregistered, but eligible to vote, African Americans in Georgia, and that the Obama campaign plans to register as many as they can.

Without getting too hyperbolic, an Obama campaign literally could remake the political landscape, at all levels, simply be increasing the share of the vote held by groups like young voters and African-Americans. That’s staggering in its implications.
