I don’t know if there will be a recount in either state because the totals are so close, but as I predicted…Missouri didn’t pick the winner for only the second time in over 100 years.
On the other hand, Indiana delivered for Obama and I think it was clear from very early in the evening that if McCain was having trouble with Indiana, his dream was pretty much over.
This is how the AP saw it around 2 am Eastern this morning…
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Another state that hasn’t voted for a Democrat for president in quite a while has done so this time.
By a narrow margin, Barack Obama is the winner in Indiana. The state’s polls were among the first to close, but the outcome wasn’t clear until long after Obama’s victory speech.
The last time Indiana voted for a Democrat for president was when Lyndon Johnson was elected in 1964.
The only question now: has it really turned blue? I have my doubts. I think deep, deep resentment for the Republicans will be replaced with maybe not-as-deep resentment for the Democrats.
We shall see…
