  •  You think a whole lot of them are thinking that? (5+ / 0-)

    Seems more likely to me they'd prefer to have jobs and health care, but the ones not voting Musgrove associate Democrats with Satan and gays and pressing one for English and stuff.

    Next January, Obama may gather all Democratic Senators together and ask whether they should have to close the Pascagoula shipyards due to tight money. The people of Mississippi might well want to have a voice at the table when that happens. Just saying.

    •  The way to turn a region blue (3+ / 0-)

      is to aggressively promote quality universal education, and the development of non-defense and military-based high-tech economic development with a unionized labor force. No area that experiences this stays red for long. The correlation is massive.

      The deep south is going to have to be a longer-term red-to-blue project, probably 10-20 years. The good thing is that we don't need it to stay in the majority, and none of this is politically exploitative. It's one of those situations where what's good for the region is also good for the left. But then when has that, or vice-versa, not been the case? LBJ's big mistake (aside from the war) was to not include such development in the Great Society. Imagine where we'd be today if he had.

      To the GOP, change means doing a 360.
