    ..someone in the race that can appeal to rural areas and state where Democrats do not traditionally do well in presidential elections.

    I may disagree with him on guns and coals, but that doesn't mean I let those disagreements blind me to the fact that it might earn him votes our other candidates aren't likely to earn.

    I certainly think he will be stronger in the South than Hillary and I want to expand the electoral map not shrink it back to when we had to win Florida and/or Ohio. I think too many mistakenly believe that if Obama won a state then Hillary can win it too as if all the states he won were naturally blue and the candidate didn't matter at all.

    It is a mistake to believe that states such as Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Ohio, and even Florida are givens for Hillary or any Democratic nominee. It is also a mistake to ignore that with the right candidate, states such as Arizona, Georgia, Texas, perhaps Indiana again,and maybe a few other now red states can't be put in play and/or turned.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.
