    making Republicans think they can win here, then snatching it away at the last minute.

    I remember in '00 when we were supposed to be a "swing state" but no one that lives here actually thought GWB would win it, and they even stopped advertising well before the election.  In '04 I don't even think they tried.

    Never give up! Never surrender!
