Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Only one of the richest wind resrouce states were "deep red" in 2008 ... Montano North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas and Texas were all lighter shades of red than in 2000/2004, and Montana and North Dakota would qualify as "purple" with the same reckoning as used going into 2008.

And there is definitely a tension between the western style of "conservatism" and the southern style of "conservatism" that can be most usefullly wedged if there is some good old fashioned parochial interests going along with it.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
