counting out the electoral college

Here are the states that counted as strongly for Obama:
Washington 11 Oregon 7 California 55
New Mexico 5 Colorado 9 Minnesota 10
Iowa 7 Wisconson 10 Illinois 21
Michigan 17 Pennsylvania 21 New York 31
Vermont 3 New Hampshire 4 Massachusetts 12
Rhode Island 4 Connecticut 7 New Jersey 15
Delaware 3 Maryland 10 Virginia 13

258 Total

If that holds, any one of North Carolina(15),Ohio(20),or Florida(27) by themselves will but Obama over the top. Or a combo play, like Nevada(5) + Indiana(11) or Missouri(11). In no scenario does Obama have to win a state currently leaning to McCain -- just pick up some state or states currently leaning his way.

I find this cause for optimism, though i'm not willing to get too happy yet.
