Obama Wins! In Dixville Notch,

This has to be a good omen:

DIXVILLE NOTCH, New Hampshire (CNN) -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama emerged victorious in the first election returns of the 2008 presidential race, winning 15 of 21 votes cast in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.

People in the isolated village in New Hampshire's northeast corner voted just after midnight Tuesday.

It was the first time since 1968 that the village leaned Democratic in an election.

Obama's rival, Republican John McCain, won 6 votes.

Update: Markos posted the numbers from past years:

  • 2004: Bush 19, Kerry 7
  • 2000: Bush 21, Gore 5
  • 1996: Dole 18, Clinton 8
  • 1992: Bush 15, Perot 8, Clinton 2
  • 1988: Bush 34, Dukakis 3

Can you say Obamacan?
