Presidential Election 2008

┬áHere we go folks. This is it. 24 hours and we’ll have ourselves a new president-elect.

My predictions:

The Obama Nation

Some of the states may sway one way or the other. It’s unclear if Obama will win North Carolina or Virginia or both. There’s even talk he may do the unthinkable and turn Georgia blue. That would be awesome.*

Keep in mind, this is all just the mildly informed guesswork of a decidedly liberal librarian. Take it for what you will. But I’m fairly confident that Obama will win and I’m not the only one. In fact, Nate Silver at fivethirtyeight is calling it for Obama with even wider margins. We’ll know soon enough.

Map via real clear politics.


*And I’ll gladly take credit for that as Elvira and I voted absentee in GA. If it goes th eother way then well, whatever. Obama will still most likely win.
