Watching the election returns as the polls in the east have started closing and initial returns have not told a lot but there is a whisper of hints.
Two states appear to have gone as expected Vermont with 3 electoral votes to Obama and Kentucky with 8 votes to McCain. What is would tell us more would be Virginia and Illinois. Both are close at this point. Both were Red states and both have been considered states that are in play and perhaps attainable for Obama. Illinois has an urban area in northwestern part of the state and as long as we stay close till those returns are in then the state will remain in play.
