So we'll go out on a limb here and answer Mike's question: Short night, big win for Barack Obama.
McCarville makes the national race sound close, but we don't think so. The Electoral College map favors Obama from east to west to some places in between.
No, Obama won't carry Oklahoma, but he will carry plenty of big states, more than enough to carry the day by a handy margin.
The bottom line: Obama wins going away. We predict no one will need to stay up late for some heavily Democratic or Republican precinct to report—it's a done deal.
