It seems as though, after weeks of trying to fight the inevitable, a major news source, CNN, has realized that Obama will have enough electoral votes to win the White House

It recently seemed that all major news sources were unwilling to give Obama the slight push over to the magic 270.  CNN, MSNBC, CBS and Fox all had him hovering between the 250 and the 260 mark, but never having enough to win it all.  This is despite the smaller, less circulated sites like electoral-vote and  intrade predicted it weeks ago.  Perhaps CNN did not want to lower ratings of its 24 hour news-a-thon and would deny polls done by Quinnipiac and Rasmussen showing a strong Obama lead mounting in the last week.  It needed conformation, perhaps justly so, from its own poll of Virginia today to give Obama a 10 point victory.  From my point of view, its about time others follow suit to really get the McSame campaign struggling.
