Wow! I finally found the counting of Electoral College votes mentioned at the once-venerable WaPo -- I never thought I'd live to see the day when the newspaper of Woodward and Bernstein would get scooped by not only the National Enquirer (re: John Edwards affair) but even the Globe (re: Obama's birth certificate) tabloid -- for his sake, I sure hope Obama is a "natural born" citizen!
