64. I think you're right about the men down here...
Most won't, IMO. A lot of women I know love the idea of a woman president, but that's not to say it's a majority of the women here. My husband is a Nascar dad, but he's a dem, too and he likes Edwards.

I think TN has a chance of going blue in '08. Ford came real close to winning here and I think the reason he didn't was based on race. In all honesty, I think Hillary has a far better chance of getting the majority of dem votes than Obama. Then Edwards might do pretty well, too. This is the south and the tendency for racism and sexism is still fairly strong.
