re what to expect:

there's this also...

State-by-State Overview of What to Expect Tuesday

Chuck Todd of MSNBC gives a rundown of what to expect in all 50 states. Some highlights:

- Arizona: If McCain loses, he will have a tough reelection fight in 2010 again Janet Napolitano
- Arkansas: The only state with a Democratic governor and two senators McCain will win
- Connecticut: Watch Chris Shays in CT-04 defend the only House GOP seat in New England
- Florida: Many key House races here (FL-08, FL-16, FL-21, FL-24, FL-25)
- Georgia: Chambliss-Martin Senate race is a cliffhanger and might need a runoff
- Hawaii: If Obama wins, will the Western White House be in Honolulu? Reporters prefer it to Crawford
- Illinois: Will Obama's coattails be long enough to swing IL-10 and IL-11?
- Indiana: Could be close
- Maryland: Democrats might pick up another House seat making in 7 out of 8
- Michigan: McCain's decision to abandon the state may cause the GOP to lose MI-07 and MI-09
- Minnesota: The closest Senate race of the year is the Coleman-Franken-Barkley race here
- Mississippi: If black turnout surges, it might wash away Roger Wicker in the Senate race
- Missouri: The most Republican of the big swing states. If Obama wins this one it will be a landslide
- Montana: The demoralized GOP base might stay home and let Obama take these 3 EVs
- Nevada: The presidential race and two House seats are definitely in play here
- New Hampshire: The Democrats will probably win all the marbles here (again)
- New Mexico: The Democrats are likely to win presidential, Senate, and all three House races
- New York: Democrats might pick up four House seats and control of the state senate
- North Carolina: very close races for President, Senate, NC-08, and governor
- North Dakota: the psychological loss of North Dakota would be worse than the electoral loss
- Ohio: Obama and McCain are close; there are key House races in OH-01, OH-02, OH-15, and OH-16
- Oregon: Obama will crush McCain here and that might be enough to drag Jeff Merkley into the Senate
- Pennsylvania: probably not in play, but PA-11 and PA-12 might be close
- Virginia: Polls close at 7 P.M. EST here. If Obama wins, the show's over
- Wyoming: Believe it or not, the Democrats might win Cheney's old House seat

According to this map, even if McCain wins every swing state, he still won't get 270 electoral votes and Obama still wins.


Except in this election, Colorado, Virginia, and Pennsylvania are the relevant swing states and that map shows Obama winning all of them...

So I talked to someone and they indicated that the networks won't call states for president before the polls close in the west (11pm). And even if it's a landslide, Obama wouldn't speak until midnight or later. But likely Senate races and some stuff will start at 8pm when the polls close in the east.

Look, I just got home from voting for the Barack Attack. There's no way McCain can win.

Sure, but I also see this sticker I got today which says "I voted. I made Freedom count!"

Who am I supposed to believe, a graph or a sticker?

Also, got a free coffee from starbucks with this hot little sticker. Chick-Fil-A has some sorta thing going as well.
