While playing with this pretty cool interactive electoral map, I thought of something. Will the networks stay with Red for Republican and Blue for Democrats. The reason the Republicans got stuck with red last time was that the challenger party gets red. Well, that should make the Dems get their more logical color this time. But that would also blur the great storyline of the 2000 election. It’ll be interesting to see if there’s a mini-controversy about it.
Oh, and by the way, if you play with that map you’ll see why this will probably be a fairly close election no matter which Democrat runs against Bush (not counting the Shaprton-Kucinich contingent).
