One state, two state, red state, blue state
Why are Republican states "red"? R for Republican and R for red? Because you know, traditionally, red stands for being pretty liberal...very liberal. And blue for Democratic? Blue, like blue blood? Isn't it backwards?
Kerry is such a pompous elitest. I miss Howard Dean.
Also, blue red has nothing to do with incumbency, since these same colors were used during the 2000 election when Gore represented the incubant.
Also, Mike, why do you equate Republicans with Bluebloods? Ronald Reagan was born to a poor family. So were Nixon and Eisenhower for that matter. This notion of the Republicans being the party of rich elitest is the biggest lie in American politics today.
