Omaha Goes Obama?

The current electoral college count is projected as 364-162. There's one vote outstanding in Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District. Could it swing the President-Elect's way? Possibly, says the Omaha World-Herald:

Good news for Barack Obama supporters.

His odds of bagging an electoral vote in Nebraska grew stronger this morning, with word that 10,000 to 12,000 early ballots and 5,200 provisional ballots are left to count in Douglas County.

Obama won about 61 percent of the early votes counted before Tuesday's election. If that percentage holds with the early ballots left to count, Obama stands a strong chance of winning the Omaha-area 2nd Congressional District.
