Show Me Obama!

John McCain may not be too happy about this news.

Looks like we might still have to move Missouri out of the red column and into the blue. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the lead has tightened between John McCain and Barack Obama to just 4,968 votes. There are still another 7,000 provisional ballots yet to be counted from mostly pro-Obama areas. These are ballots that were cast because there was a problem with the voter's registration, or they voted in the wrong district, or any other number of reasons. They may not all be valid ballots. From the Post:
County election officials have recovered almost 3,200 additional votes in the last few days. Most of them came from various electronic voting machines where the votes had apparently not been tallied by polling place workers during the initial collection of votes. Missouri remains the only state where it's officially unclear which candidate carried the state. And it may take another two or three weeks before a winner is declared.
What an accomplishment it would be if Obama took both Indiana and Missouri.
