Etienne is watching election results over his laptop in a hotel room tonight. Voila, a 2004 map in one pane, and the CNN 2008 map in another. He is glad to see Ohio predicted to go for Obama. That may be enough, with Iowa and New Mexico perhaps returning blue, as well. He is dismayed to see the margin for Obama in his own North Carolina narrow over the evening. He wishes his southern state to be wise, and to elect Obama, who happens to be Africain-Americain. He is in another southern state this night, one he is not surprised to see vote for McCain. He would like to think better of his beloved NC.
