Tonight, we made history here in the U.S.! . . . A non-violent revolution!

Although most media outlets would rather wait until at least the polls in California close at 8PM Pacific Time (about an hour from now), I am ready to declare that Barack Obama will become the 44th President of the U.S. tonight.

Obama with 200 projected electoral votes currently, including Ohio and Pennsylvania, will add California (55), Oregon (5), and Washington (11), in about an hour and pass 270 required to win.

He might even win as many as 300 electoral votes by the end of the count, especially if he wins Florida, and Virginia, two of the ‘too close to call' states.

The turnout was heavy. I voted today; waited about 25 minutes, which wasn't that bad, considering California had several propositions on the ballot that are hotly contested, including Proposition 8 which would overturn the recent court decision in California that allows same sex marriage. Then again, this is the O.C.
