    ADD 268 + 13 = 281 (NOT 3!)

    You vote for Obama, you will be welcomed to my OHANA!

      You have to give Obama 1 more for the "lost" Edwards vote.  That gets you to 269.

      But yes, your electoral map looks about right.  You can add any of the following states for a win:

      Virginia
      N. Carolina
      Nevada
      Ohio
      Florida
      Missouri?
      New Hampshire?
      Indiana???

      So, I think your point is taken.  A tie is unlikely.  I think Obama has a pretty good chance of taking at least ONE of those states.
