The media uniformly had Obama's Electoral College vote at 207 at 8 pm PST.

The networks just called it, because polls hadn't closed in the West, particularly here on the West Coast.

But there's little question Obama is going to win the 73 votes in California, Oregon, and Washington alone. Now that the polls have closed, we can say that.

That puts his total at 280, ten more than the 270 needed. And there will be more now that the West Coast polls have closed.

You can start celebrating now.
