  •  My Idaho relatives were THRILLED when he lost (0+ / 0-)

    While they're both Dems and in the minority, they said most people in Idaho knew he was a buffoon and a crazy man. Not that we needed any more confirmation of that!

    Another interesting point about Idaho: What drove people there over the edge about Bush was the Terri Schiavo case. After that (so my relatives told me), many of their formerly GOP friends announced that they had become "conservative Democrats." Again, still in the minority but away from the dark side.

    Their political advice for Dems making inroads in the West was to be more relaxed about open land use. So many people there are ranchers.

    We're never going to get a progressive Democrat elected in Idaho. I say take what we can get.
