One more Electoral Vote puts me 9 away and DgoSteve 11 away!
But didn't you predict Barr at 2.4 which would make you the winner even without the Nebraska vote.

Final tally is in... since Missouri finally finished counting:
Obama: 365
McCain: 173

El Flaco wins in The Buzz. Nate Silver wins in the Real World.

Missouri LOSES its "bellwether" status "Uncle Ted" Stevens LOSES his job.

Nice Nate Silver reference.
Statistics = power
"self-aggrandizing jackass" - it says it right on the label

not quite official

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Electoral College met on Monday to officially elect Barack Obama as the next president of the United States.

Meeting in state capitals across the country, members of the Electoral College were expected to give Democrat Obama 365 votes and his Republican rival John McCain 173 votes.

The college votes will be certified by the U.S. Congress on January 8.
