Instant win

It was amusing to see the Obama electoral vote count sitting at 207 for quite a while waiting for the West Coast results to come in and then instantly see his number leap to 284 in the same sentence as the announcement that the West Coast polls had closed. The polls close and less than two seconds later Obama is declared the next president-elect. Technically, Obama now has his win, but we still do not know the final electoral college vote tally. I suspect that he will come in a bit higher than my forecast of 325 electoral college votes. Virginia was just called for him, bringing him to 297. Florida, North Carolina, Indiana, Missouri, and Colorado are still hanging.
