The Northwest’s polls are closed

As of 8 pst.

Some thoughts on this – coming at just about the time President Obama seems to be nailing down 270+ to win a second term – as the numbers come in int he next little bit.

Update 8:17 p.m. Okay, I’ll go ahead and say it: With Colorado and Iowa called by major media, if the west coast (including Idaho) goes as expected, Obama has been re-elected. Whatever Ohio, Virginia and Florida do.

BTW, on the Huffington Post electoral map, that site just declared Obama as the winner with 275 (so far) electoral votes – kicked over the line by the addition of Oregon’s seven electoral votes, just added to the blue column.
