According to Steve Green, Larry Sabato's final crystal ball is calling for the Electoral College vote to deadlock at 269. What happens then? The presidential vote moves to the House of Representatives, where each state's delegation gets to cast one vote. The Republicans currently control 30 state delegations, the Democrats 15, and 5 are tied. This balance is not like to change in tomorrow's House elections.

So, a tied Electoral College vote would mean a victory for Dubya.....that is, assuming all the Electors vote the way they are supposed to.

My best advice: this is Larry having some fun with us. This is the outcome that the talking heads would love the best, as it would make great tee-vee between now and January. Bad for the country, great for the cable networks. But it's not going to happen.

Perhaps I'm crazy, but I'm strangely attracted to the idea of a Bush-Edwards outcome...
