The folks at Pollster seem to think that Obama will win Virginia, first time since 1964, breaking a 44 year Republican stronghold streak (according to this great website). Is anyone else out there shocked by this? One year ago, I was still saying that the US isn't ready to elect an African American (or a woman b/c Hillary was still in it) as president. Yet now we are possibly looking at not only an African American president, but one who WON a state south of the Mason-Dixon line! Something that NO WHITE president-elect has done in over four decades. Go Obama!
