Great Election Map

I'm really enjoying this Politico election map (click on image below), not so much because it shows the red and blues states (although that also) but because you can click on a state and see how the individual counties voted. You can find out things like: in Leslie County, eastern Kentucky, an astonishing 89% of voters backed Romney; in Oklahoma, not a single county voted for Obama; in South Carolina, there were a surprising (to me, at least) number of Obama counties—and North Carolina almost went blue.

If you come across any other cool/informative/imaginative election maps, please let me know. What I'm hoping to find is a continuous-zoom/drill-down map (like Google Maps) showing voting patterns, election data, etc.
