CNN and Fox News, the two holdouts, have now called Pennsylvania for Barack Obama. This is very, very bad news for those still hoping John McCain might pull a miracle out of his hat tonight. At this point, he'll basically have to run the table in the battleground states that still remain up for grabs in order to win.
