Not like you missed it, but John McCain has just conceded the White House to Barack Obama – in a very classy, gracious speech, we might add.

The results have been leaning hard in Obama’s direction all night. Folks are reportedly dancing in the streets in downtown Oakland. (And we’re pretty sure we heard someone cheering in the middle distance earlier this evening when we stopped off to check for lines at Edison School.)

We’re focusing on local results and other races of interest, so for more on the presidential race, check out our blogroll and newslinks to your right.

Stay tuned for more results tonight. We were just at the county Registrar of Voters, and they’re saying they should start releasing results online at about 10 p.m.
