    Electing a Dem from Kansas will not impress the south or rest of the midwest.  All they will see is a Democrat.

    She might carry Kansas... what is that 4 electoral votes?

      Consider a random recent election, oh how about 2000?

      Bush 271, Gore 266.

      Change that to Bush 267, Gore 270, and I think the last 6 years might have played out a bit differently.

      And the point isn't necessarily to win the reddest of the red states.  The point is to win the Ohios, the Iowas, the Missouris.  The states that could swing to blue.

      A Southwestern candidate might be even better, as those states are more borderline.  But a lot of the country seems to have a special and strange bias against NE or California Dems, so perhaps a different region would work better.

      Hey, I don't agree with it - I live in Boston, lots of good people here - but I'm willing to work that bias if that's what we need to get reasonable governance back in this country.
