2008: Much closer but Obama still wins with 311 EVs. McCain wins FL, IN, NC and NE-2 and ends up with 227 EVs. Popular vote would be 50.7%-48.0% for Obama.

2012: With no financial crisis to recover from the economy is stronger and Obama coasts to re-election. Romney decides to wait until '16. Santorum gets the nod, chooses Huckabee and gets crushed. Obama picks up FL, IN, NC, GA, MT and MO, along with NE-2, and wins 388-150.  Popular vote would be 55.2%-43.7% for Obama.

Obama/Biden: 311 (51.5%
McCain/Palin: 227 (47.7%)

This.  Closer election, but Obama would've won through in the end.
