In Case You Missed It Over The Weekend: President Obama Also Won Florida

So, that means I can update my previous post. I was correct about Florida, it is indeed "in the bag":
After a four-day count with neck-and-neck tallies, President Obama was declared the winner of Florida's 29 electoral votes Saturday, earning 50 percent to Mitt Romney's 49.1 percent, according to the Secretary of State's office.

The victory puts the president - who had clinched reelection Tuesday night even without Florida - at a final 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206. It also marks his sweep of eight of the nine swing states, with North Carolina his only battleground loss.

Mr. Obama's margin of victory is over the half-percent mark that would trigger a computer recount unless Romney had waived it. A handful of overseas and military ballots, which have a Nov. 16 deadline, are believed to remain outstanding, but under Florida law, recounts are based on Saturday's results.
I suppose that the results coming in from Florida are a moot point -- as the election was decided without the Sunshine State last Tuesday.

And, there is something very satisfying about that.

But it makes me feel pretty good about my predictions, since the President swept each and every battleground state. The only ones that I got wrong were New Mexico and Virginia.
