16. Good analysis overall, but winning states that we are supposed to win, doesn't help us either.
We need to win battleground states in the general election. There's only a handful of them. Both Hillary and Obama are in a world of hurt when it comes to winning these states. Most are dead-center or conservative-leaning, like Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Ohio etc. A McCain candidacy definitely brings serious problems for us. I can't see the electoral map changing all that much with either one. And McCain should carry most of these battlegrounds.

Florida looks to be gone, with McCain as the nominee, and its large military presence. Also New Hampshire is a state where the electorate really likes McCain, and we might lose that one in the fall, despite the Dem gains down the ticket in 2006.
