Secession Petitions Gain Supporter -- Fast

Call it the confederacy of petitioners, except the petitions have now spread beyond the South.
In the days since President Obama secured re-election, a wave of petitions from states in almost every region of the country has hit WhiteHouse.gov calling for secession from the union.
At the White House site We the People, visitors can submit petitions on a range of "important" issues facing the country, and the White House promises to review them and issue a response once they reach a certain "signature threshold."
But some loopholes in the procedure allow the White House to get out of that commitment, as ABC's Sarah Parnass recently reported.
