We talked last night about Missouri's continuing status as bellwether state. We certainly voted differently than the election went, but not by much. The presidential race was tighter than a mouse's rectum. According to the Secretary of State's website:

McCain (Rep) – 1,444,613 (49.4%)
Obama (Dem) – 1,436,745 (49.2%)
Bob Barr (Lib) – 11,355 (.4%)
Chuck Baldwin (Cst) – 8,181 (.3%)
Ralph Nader (Ind) – 17,769 (.6%)
Cynthia McKinney (Write In)0 – 958 (.0%)

It will be interesting to see how Missouri fits into the next presidential election. It does look like Obama's campaigning here made a significant difference.

I suppose I was right. Not very excited about being right, but Missouri did not vote for the President Elect in 2008.
