The US election result

For a while it looked very likely that we'd ended up with hanging chad again, this time in Ohio. But as time passes it's only looking mathematically, rather than actually, possible for Kerry to win. Bush currently has a lead of around 137,000 votes in Ohio, and with only 146,000 provisional ballots awaiting counting, Kerry would have to win almost all of them to gain the Presidency.
