EIGHT TO THREE…. The networks have called Kentucky for McCain, and Vermont for Obama. That puts us at eight electoral votes to three … which tells us nothing.

Polls are also now closed in Indiana, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia, all of which are too close to call.

I’d just add that four years ago, some of these states — most notably Indiana and South Carolina — were called by the networks immediately. Not this year.
