It's 9:30 pm EST and I'm ready to project Obama as the next president of the U.S.A.
Obama has won both Ohio and Pennsylvania -- making it impossible for McCain to get to 270 electoral votes.
Obama has 200 EVs: Maine, NY, NJ, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, all of New England, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, New Mexico.
Add in California's 55 EVs, Oregon's 7 and Washington's 11--states still voting that are solid for Obama and you're over the top with 273 EVs.
But there's also Obama's 4 EVs in Hawaii, and his likely 9 EVs in Colorado and 5 in Nevada yet to come. And he's ahead in Florida (27) and North Carolina (15). And there's still a chance to capture Virginia's 13 and Indiana's 11 -- two states where it's still to close to call. And then there's Montana's 3 EVs.
The nightmare is over. New America has been born.
