Amazingly close

This is the closest election ever (see http://cnn.com).

There are three states left: Iowa (7), New Mexico (5), Ohio (20). Ohio matters mightily as it is the only state with enough electoral votes to carry either candidate over the top. Ohio is running extremely close but Bush has a 100,000 vote lead there. Ohio will not have a full count until the 13th, so this is going to be a rough couple of weeks with lawyers swarming like hungry locusts.

Things are so close now that corruption or perhaps magic could easily shift the probabilities.
