NC - Obama Finally Wins the State

North Carolina has finally been called for Obama today. It was one of the final two states whose outcome is still being determined.

Yay!! Time for another downtown block party!!

I was hoping that Obama would win North Carolina. It was going to be close, but he just barely eeked it out. This is really more symbolic than anything, since the race is already decided, but it remains a powerful symbol nontheless. The Republican hold on the South is being broken, as the racist politics of the Southern Strategy give way to 21st Century America. We're living in a radically different nation than the America of 40 years ago. We should all feel pride and satisfaction for all our hard work.

Obama's score now stands at 364. Missouri is now the final state to be determined. I picked that state for the win, so I'll cross my fingers and hope for the best.
