    some quick thoughts on VRA case, which went up about 10:30 on Tuesday after the VRA case was announced.  

    While it is brief, let me repeat just this much:

    And here is where the rubber could meet the road -  the Hispanic vote.  Republican refusal to even consider fixing Section 4 could be used to attack them as being anti-Hispanic, with real backlash potential.

    Considering the current demographic patterns, which Markos and others have noted, this plays in a number of key states -

    TX, CO, NV, AZ and NM for starters.   Were the Republicans to lose all of those because of the Hispanic vote they would have no path to 270 electoral votes.

    I agree with Vyan about the backlash - we saw it big time in a number of states last year, especially in PA, FL and OH and in the last it was a part of the reason for the narrow victory.
