    NC is going to be a pitched battle for the next few cycles, but it's definitely trending in our direction. One of the things that made the GOP freak out more than anything else in 2008 was that Obama carried NC and Indiana.

    I think Arizona is tough. It's old and white, and will remain so for awhile. But Georgia, surprisingly, really could come into play, and when it does, you can kiss the old GOP goodbye.

    Not that this is all necessarily a good thing, mind you. I don't want an American version of the PRI. Having a competitive countervailing party is a good thing for democracy as long as one of them isn't certifiably insane.

    Have a flagon and discuss the news of the day at the sign of the Green Dragon, or hear me roar on Twitter @MarkGreenFuture

    •  I worry about single party rule too (0+ / 0-)

      I vote for Republicans occasionally at the city and state level (never county or federal) if they are sane, because those levels of government are dominated by Democrats in my neck of the woods.  A lock on power just leads to complacency and corruption.

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
