TAKE IT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT...

...but it's pretty much a given.



Andrew Gelman of Columbia University has taken a recent set of our simulations to look at what may happen conditional on the outcomes of the first states to close their polls at 6 and 7 PM. The bottom line? If those states go roughly as expected (meaning, say, an Obama win in Virginia and a close race in Indiana), we can conclude with almost literal 100 percent certainty that Obama will win the election.

Gotta love them 'puters.

Thanks ladies, (meeeeeeow)

I AM having a great day and can't wait until January when he can just be sworn in and we're finally rid of Dubya forever.
