I was looking at this blog post on the front page with a big picture of Virginia, saying:

I have my doubts that that will ever happen, but it will be interesting to watch as the GOP implodes on their way to being a regional party with pockets of strength outside the South – and unless they get their act together the South won't always be a haven for them.

Well, the South's best-kept, dirty, little secret after the break.

Here it is, the picture that Republicans do not want you to see. A sea of blue in North Carolina for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
President and Vice-President

But, wait, it gets dirtier. Here is what one of our tightest state-wide wins looked like, Bev Perdue for Governor.

From there, it just gets dirtier and dirtier. Our new US Senator, Kay Hagan.

And, finally, do you want to see the future? Do you want to see the next Democratic Senator from North Carolina? His name is Roy Cooper and THIS is what his map looked like when we woke up on Wednesday, November 5th.
Attorney General Roy Cooper

So, hop on board the Cooper for Senate bandwagon Daily Kos.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
