The show-me state is still counting

Missouri, the so-called ‘show-me state’, has yet to show us who it voted for as president.

Last night, McCain led Obama by 1,444,947 to 1,440,543. At time of blogging, he’s ahead by 1,445,022 to 1,440,667. No indication of when they’ll be done (re)counting.

Had the election been closer across the rest of the country, Missouri – with its 11 electoral votes – might well have been the Florida of 2008. Think how nasty it could have got.
