After almost two years of campaigning, Democrat candidate Barrack Obama, Republican, John McCain yesterday brought their train to a halt in their respective home states to await the verdict of Americans.
So far, the odds favour the once underdog in American politics, Obama, the African-American Senator from Illinois State .
A Congressional Quarterly (CQ) politics monitored on BBC put the Kenyan born American ahead of his rival, Senator McCain.
Even though Senator Obama leads in all polls, unlike in other countries, aside of winning the popular votes, a presidential candidate would have to win a minimum of 270 out of the 538 Electoral College votes to ascend to the throne.
Each state has a certain number of electors who elect the president depending on the size of the state.
And so far, Barrack Obama has a lead of 146 as against 101 for McCain in the Electoral College.

Pinging the pingers
Would an AP article actually feature a headline that reads “GO OBAMA!” - I don’t know about this one.
Bump and Ping
All of the ones I’ve seen so far have an AP byline - WTH?
That seems more like a conservative newspaper title... Go Obama, PLEASE GO! GO BACK TO KENYA!!
The graphic webpage instead of the print webpage.
Anything from a newbie should be viewed w/ caution.
~~Another ‘Kenyan-born’ .. from Ghana
Doesn’t look like the typical AP (Assoc. Press) layout
or look. Could also be African Press .. who knows.

It sure it! I see it on cars all over, not just PA-River.
AP articles often have locally generated headlines. But this may have been a locally generated story that was put on the AP wire.
Since I haven't read the article, it's hard to say. I've had to kill my browser 3 times, as trying to read the article locks it up.
Also, it says “By AP”.
Do African newspapers actually us “By” before the accreditation?
Usually it would say
AP. Just AP.
Is it "Kenyan born American"?
