Battle Lines Being Drawn

Good article from Real Clear Politics that explains both why the GOP is desperate to change the rules of the game in California and why they face the possibility of a serious whupping in 2008. The article identifies Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio and Virginia as potential Democratic pick ups at the presidential level. With the Republicans down to their base, and the base shrinking, and with George W. Bush tied around the neck of whoever staggers out of the convention, the potential is there for a historic realignment, assuming as always that the Democrats don't manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
