>03:36 Apparently Massachusetts and Michigan have approved decriminalising cannabis.

03:31 Remember that Republican who said Obama was unAmerican and called for an investigation and her Dem opponent then raised $1.3million in a week? She is 5% ahead with 24% of precincts in.

03:29 I was talking bollocks about Virginia at 03:21 – I got it mixed up with West Virginia……..

03:24 Gap widens in Virginia – now 39000.

03:23 – Nick Robinson just made a point about US electing a novice……..

03:21 – my Virginia obsession continues. The highest Democrat vote in recent history was Clinton’s 41% 12 years ago. For Obama to come so close – and he may yet win – is good.

03:17 – is Missouri going to get it wrong for the first time in ages. McCain ahead there……. Colorado still looking good. Obama 7% ahead with 16% in.

03:11 I’m getting obsessed with Virginia – now 30,000 votes in it in Obama’s favour. If he wins that, then maybe I’ll be convinced……

03:04 – Only 12000 votes in it in Virginia – Obama ahead – that’s close
02:50 – early days, but Obama 9% ahead in Colorado according to CNN. They’ve only just really started though and we don’t know where the 8% they’ve counted are….

02:38 Obama projected to take New Mexico – a gain from last time. McCain needed that one. Time for another cup of tea and some chocolate….

02:35 Virginia now 50% each with 72% of precincts in according to CNN…………

02:24 – Dimblebore is now saying that Obama has won Ohio. Surely the Beeb can’t get it wrong……..

02:05 If Fox News is saying that Obama has won Ohio, this has to be very good news indeed….. Would prefer it had come from a more reputable source, though.

02:11 Virginia, hmmm – McCain ahead according to CNN after 60% of precincts in, maybe not so good. Should not have said anything positive about the results. Now having a mild flutter of anxiety.
