72. IMO sad that we can't negotiate an 11 state solution before things get to that point...
Edited on Sat Dec-11-10 11:44 AM by WhaTHellsgoingonhere
We're not there yet, but it's getting to the point that what binds us is the Republicans deep seeded need for beating liberals.

Here's the 10 state map (dividing East Coast and West Coast into 2 states yields 11), which is based on voting patterns of these regions.

I long to live in Mega-Chicago someday...
