That Virgina and North Carolina went blue - and not by very wide margins- is no idication that the South is ripe for a "leftist" agenda as Mr. Delzell (from Massachuestts, no less) hopes in his web letter. Nor is it time for Mr. Moser to paint a "New, Blue Dixie."

Those Southern states that remained red--Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana--along with West Virginia, Kentucky and Texas, aren't likely to change colors anytime soon. So you guys can dream and predict blue, but most of us who live in the South will live the reality of red and like it, thank you very much.
