  •  The biggest problem in drawing Maryland (3+ / 0-)

    is of course satisfying incumbents, who have gotten used to representing strange configurations of precincts.  Also, Sarbanes and Ruppersberger want at least 57% Obama districts I would bet.  Edwards wants some of Montgomery, Hoyer doesn't want too many African-Americans...out of all of them, Van Hollen seems the most agreeable.

    But I get that this is an experiment in ignoring such concerns.  All I would suggest is a bit more creative line-drawing around Baltimore to shore up MD-02 and MD-03.
