Obama – Sweeping the Nation, One State at a Time…

Blue states, red state, and purple states…Oh my.  This reminds me of the time I made a political map.  Now my hubby is a big Republican (yeah I know YUCK, but he’s a good guy so I’ll keep him), so I made this map and sent it to him.  I made the entire country blue, except Utah.  When he asked why I’d bothered to leave Utah blue, I told him I didn’t want it and I’d let him have it. 

These are exciting times for me.  I never thought I’d get to see a map as blue as it is (with the exception of the one I made)!! 

Barack Obama has an 8 point lead in Colorado.  I knew they’d come around.  A friend of mine in the state of Colorado has to be pretty happy about that.  Those were her llamas I posted earlier.  Thanks again Teri for the great pics!!  Llamas for Obama, how do you not like that??

Even Indiana is a toss up at this point.  I have to say I’m kind of suprised by that one!!

And have I mentioned that Virginia is going blue this election!  Whoo hoo baby whoo hoo!!!


Traditionally Red…Gone Blue!

We keep reading about all these red states John McCain is having to defend.  Well historically they may have been red, but the color blue is sweeping the nation!  It’s an exciting time.  I’ve just registered to vote in the state of Virginia.  I moved here a few months ago and the primary was over, so I guess I did what I typically do and put it to the last minute. 

Thankfully my voter reg card has come, and one more Democrat supporting Senators Obama and Biden will be voting in Virginia in November.  And, hey no worries about where my vote was before.  I’m feeling pretty confident California will go blue, even without my vote!

Blue States – Who’s Next?

Okay, so I just got home from a quick trip to the Midwest.  Out and back in two days.  Yuck.  As my daughter is studying for her Economics test (have I mentioned that she’s 8! – Don’t get me started on this load of crap!), I opened my computer to see what’s in the news. 

Mike Duhaime, and for those of you who don’t know who that is…he’s the yutz that steered the Giulliani ship into the ground, is quoted saying Iowa, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania are republican RED states.  Now, having lived in all three I’d beg to differ with Duhaime (on oh so many things). 

First of all you may note that Iowa has a Democratic Governor, Chet Culver.  You may also note, they have one Republican and one Democrat serving in the Senate.  I’m not sure that qualifies as a Republican stonghold.  Now Iowa did go for Bush, I’m ashamed to say, but barely!  To be fair, a little over 1/2 of a percent.  Wow Duhaime, that’s amazing.

Second of all, Minnesota is the land of Paul Wellstone.  I don’t think anyone is confused about what party the late great Senator came from!  And historically it’s been a toss up there!  They have recently elected a Democrat to the Senate…in 06…you might remember that Mike.  It’s when the Republicans lost control of the Senate.

Third of all, Pennsylvania has a Democratic Governor!  And can I say went BLUE in 04?!?

So maybe that’s one of the reasons Mike didn’t do such a great job steering Giulliani.  Either he can’t read,   doesn’t understand percentages, or he is delusional.  Hell, I’ll go as far as say all three. 

So good luck McCain.  Duhaime’s a real winner. 


Oh and by the way, Mike, if you haven’t noticed Virginia is trending BLUE!!  Whoo hoo!!! is the best place for your personal blog or business site.
