National Election Prediction Thread

First prize? Why, bragging rights, of course!
Mine? Not too far off the consensus, but I'll take a stab at some outside guesses also.
Obama 308 votes (possibly up to 332, if everything breaks his way)
Senate: Dems pick up 1 seat, though possibly 2 (shocking considering the conventional wisdom 6 months ago)
House: Dems pick up 5-10, so , I'll choose 8, GOP still has comfortable majority. Far less than the Dems had hoped to pick up.
