    what the data means nor do I have a clue as to the methods you used, but it looks like you did a lot work and the info is interesting so here's a 4.  I am not very able in these areas. :)

      congressional districts in TX and WY were more Republican than we would otherwise have predicted, and those in MA and CT were more Democratic

        Since VP choices often seem to involve "native son" impact it would be really interesting to find out if that's real or not.  Did Edwards pull NC closer, and by how much?  What about other years, what effect did veep candidates have in home state or region?

        thanks for all of the data-crunching you do in these diaries!  I know it takes a lot of time...
