Barack Obama has apparently accomplished one very important thing that Al Gore and John Kerry could not: According to MSNBC and Fox News, he's won Ohio and its 20 Electoral College votes. Assuming that projection holds up, this election is all but over.

Update: ABC News has called it for Obama as well.
