Waiting for History Blogging

November 4, 2008 9:17 p.m.

10:17 PM … Here are the numbers to consider. At present, with the called states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Mexico, Obama has 202 electoral votes. If Obama wins California, Oregon and Washington, which have never really been in doubt, he moves to 275. And he wins the presidency.

10:29 PM … Hmmm. Fox withdrawing its call for Wicker in Mississippi.

10:30 PM … Multiple networks calling a Murtha win.

10:40 PM … We may be 20 minutes out from the nets calling the whole thing for Obama.

10:42 PM … Latest from Virginia. With 90% reporting, Obama up 51%-49% in Virginia, a margin of 51,000 votes. And from what I can tell it’s Obama areas still to report. This is starting to look good.

10:44 PM … Fox calls Virginia. But so for only Fox, and they’ve been out ahead on every call.
