Florida is the nation's biggest swing state, but it didn't matter in the presidential election this year. President Obama won re-election and returned to Washington to get back to work, yet Florida election officials are still counting votes to determine whether Obama or Mitt Romney will get the Sunshine State's electoral votes. As of Wednesday, Obama had 49.8 percent of the vote to Romney's 49.2 percent, but thousands of votes remained to be counted. Florida officials can't say when they'll have a final tally, but counties have until noon Saturday to announce their unofficial results.
