OK, I've parsed a few scenarios.  First scenario came up with SteelerfaninCO's count, second came up with the Emperor's.  So I'll throw Missouri into the mix, despite my gut feeling that late Repub push there drives the state red.  It may be the closest contest nationally, and I have a feeling they'll be settling that one after the election is called.

Barack Obama - 364

CA (55), CO (9), CT (7), DC (3), DE (3), FL (27), HI (4), IA (7), IL (21), MA (12), MD (10), ME (4), MI (17), MN (10), MO (11), NC (15), NH (4), NJ (15), NM (5), NY (31), NV (5), OH (20), OR (7), PA (21), RI (4), VA (13), VT (3), WA (11), WI (10).

John McCain - 174

AK (3), AL (9), AR (6), AZ (10), GA (15), ID (4), IN (11), KS (6), KY (Cool, LA (9), MS (6), MT (3), ND (3), NE (5), OK (7), SC (Cool, SD (3), TN (11), TX (34), UT (5), WV (5), WY (3).

A few months ago, I would have thought Obama might win PA but lose FL and OH.  I never thought he would have a shot at NC.  And I was dubious about VA.  He could have a shot at IN, but I don't think he wins that.

I'm locking in the predictions later tonight.  Last chance to revise or put in your prediction...

Pensod - Obama, 293-245
Jonzr - Obama, 312.5-225.5
SFinCO - Obama 338-200
Finny - Obama 364-174

Come on, where's the McCain optimists who think he can turn it around?

Absolutely free Big Ben T-shirt on the line here, folks!

This will be locked in post-game.  So far:

Pensod - Obama, 293-245
Jonzr - Obama, 312.5-225.5
SFinCO - Obama 338-200
Finny - Obama 364-174
Jcharding - Obama 353-185
Burghboi - Obama 300-*228
Leighclay - Obama 333-205

*Burghboi originally posted Obama would win 300-328, which I believe was a typo.  I've corrected the McCain electoral tally to 228.

Still time to win a lovely Big Ben T-shirt, folks.  Or possibly the shmancey dinner jacket, redolent of a past Speaker, if he had gotten into the cider.

Finny has to get rid of it, or the authorities will come looking for him.  Seems its been disrupting radar patterns in the Harrisburg area.

It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife; the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sun up. Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts.
