Thank god for CO and Virginia wins. Imagine if Florida and Ohio were the states

that would decide the race.

Ohio's absentee and provisional ballots won't be counted until mid-November.

Florida is precariously close to automatic recount territory.

CO and Virginia wins mean we had a winner declared last night without litigation.

2. Would be a nightmare.

Mitt would not concede. OH has many thousands of provisional ballots and thousands of absentee ballots that have not arrived yet. I don't trust Florida to either count the votes (we still don't have the results from them), or do a recount.

3. You make quite an excellent point.

The credit should also go to the diverse populations of both states (hispanics primarily in Colorado; but also a lot of liberals), African-Americans in Virginia.
