Closing In

Debbie Harry for President!

Let's not forget that in 2004, Bush-Cheney barely defeated Kerry-Edwards: by one state (Ohio). Electoral votes: 286-251. Needed to win: 270. In 2000, Bush won by one state (Florida). Was it shady? Yes. Just like JFK's narrow win in 1960. This time . . . the Democrats need a convincing victory . . .

And the Democrats do have an opportunity to win big in 2008 . . . A Clinton-Obama combo could be a Crusher, like Clinton-Gore in 1992, though slightly different in how the states fall. McCain-Huckabee might hold the Red States shown immediately above, but not necessarily. Georgia and North Carolina could go Blue.

Another 4 years of any administration that concentrates it's efforts on foreign policy will turn this state and the rest of the country into a near third world status.

But after Michigan's disenfranchisement from the nominating process I really won't care again until the general election, where I will vote my progressive conscience

I'm not sure about the Clinton/Obama ticket. I wonder how much polarization we'd get.

Seems to me that polarization is inescapable in the USA. Short of an alien invasion. As long as my side has the big hammer, no problem!

Wouldn't it be cool if voting actually changed things?
