Here's a post of mine from this morning, for your interest:
Even though I'll actually be catching a plane to NYC for the week, I put together a bus to Nevada from SoCal for my MoveOn council. Here's what I sent 92 members:
This is the perfect opportunity, all!
McCain / Palin doesn't stand a ghost of a chance here in California, of course, but Nevada is another matter, where it's a virtual dead heat:
Poblano's FiveThirtyEight [link]
To put that in perspective, consider this. If Barack were to win Nevada, Colorado, Montana and North Dakota - states which are all virtual fence-sitter ties at the moment which usually go Republican - he can literally afford to lose Ohio and still win the presidency:
Nevada(5) + Colorado(9) + Montana(3) + North Dakota(3) = Ohio(20)
Now don't worry - Barack is still doing pretty good in Ohio, too. Just sayin' . . . but you get the idea!
Personally, Nevada will be where I'm putting all my time and attention. Remember - there's only 60 days until the elections!
This is perfect. That is perfect. Perfect comes from perfect. When you take perfect away from perfect, the remainder is perfect. - Upanishads

I am usually such a pessimist, but I have turned into a hopeful optimist about Nevada.

It's all in the numbers - register voters for Obama, Today! OBAMA/BIDEN '08!

Kerry states (252) + Iowa (7) + New Mexico (5) + Nevada (5) = 269 - tie in the electoral college
That would throw the election to the House, where Democrats should have a comfortable majority in the 111th Congress. Obama is already comfortably ahead in IO and NM, so when NV is switched, we wouldnt need EITHER OH, FL, VA or CO...
