Electoral-night scenario toy

Check out this election-night scenario clickable map from the Washington Times, where you can try out the combination that can put Barack Obama or John McCain in the victory column.

This was a fun thing to play around with. Here's my unscientific guess, starting with the "2008 Battlegrounds" map and then setting the states to blue or red based on my gut feeling as to how people there are going to vote. This could be a nice tool to facilitate an office betting pool. Everyone chips in a buck, prints out their guess as to how the electoral map will do, and the pot goes to the person whose map is closest to how the actual states went.
