    This red-blue thing is bullshit. Obama will be a 50 state president. What a nice change of pace that will be!

      I was just being provocative.  I don't say snide things about Texas, and once lived there.

      Somebody once forwarded me a map of the 2004 results, with various shades of blue, based on who voted for Kerry.  Even though Texas was pretty low with only 38% voting for Kerry, it was still quite obvious that just because a state votes for the Republican candidate that doesn't mean it's in lockstep.

      It still amazes me how much traction the red-state/blue-state meme has had.  Until now, that is!
