American endorsements

in Daily updates, Politics

The last few days have seen Obama endorsements from The Globe and Mail, The Economist, and even The Colbert Report. FiveThirtyEight.com is projecting a high likelihood of Obama victory.

With the moment of decision at hand, most of the world is definitely hoping that Americans will choose Obama. Within five days, we will know if that hope is justified.

At this stage, given how the polls look, the whole world will feel robbed if Obama somehow loses.

I have given Obama my vote in an absentee ballot and hope for a clear and decisive victory. I think that people look at him as a fresh start to a better future and a time of healing.

It is certainly an exciting election.

Which state did you cast your ballot in?

Also, there are some states that truly do appear to be “must-wins” for McCain. In each and every one of the 624 victory scenarios that the simulation found for him this afternoon, McCain won Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Indiana and Montana. He also picked up Ohio in 621 out of the 624 simulations, and North Carolina in 622 out of 624. If McCain drops any of those states, it’s pretty much over.
