Election Update - 8:30 CST

Very exciting to watch the returns come in. It's absolutely magnificent to see so many people gather at Grant Park in Chicago. Early results have brought no surprises. Of the states called so far, both candidates are projected to win the states that they were supposed to win. New Hampshire was just called for Obama. A mild blow for McCain, I guess, although no major surprise there.

Also interesting to see the voter breakdown. Independents in NH supposedly voted 60% - 38% in favor for Obama. Electoral College 81 Obama, 34 McCain.
