Obama Runs Up the Score

Keep your eyes open on electoral maps for a blue dot in the heart of red-state country. Yesterday, Barack Obama was awarded the electoral vote of Omaha's congressional district in Nebraska, which, along with Maine, is the only state in the union to split its electoral votes by district. It is the first time since Lyndon Johnson's 1964 blowout that any Democrat has won an electoral vote from Nebraska. On Tuesday night, Obama was down a few hundred votes, but he won mail-in ballots, giving him a winning margin of 1,260 votes.
