I hope Arizona doesn't become this election's Ohio
In 2000, Gore lost Ohio by 3 percent or so, after pulling his resources away from the state in the final weeks.

This election, I think Arizona has the potential of being the same way. Right now, polls have a small lead for Bush, but it looks like that gap is tightening.

So is it possible to win this state? I think Clinton won it once (I'm not sure which time). Another state that has some potential is Arkansas.

At first I was thinking the only real states Kerry had a chance of picking up were Florida, New Hampshire, and Ohio. That too, I wasn't sure if I even trusted Florida because of Jeb.

Now, it looks as though Kerry has a better chance in several states which went red in '00.

1. Arizona voted Prez Clinton twice by large margin...
Not only did Arizona voted for Clinton for his first election by a large margin, Arizonas voted for Clinton for his re-election. It was surprising because Goldwater was still alive, McCain was the favorite Senator, and democrats didn't have many local officials in office.

2. I just checked the numbers
Apparently Clinton didn't win it the first time.

He won it when he was reelected by some two percent. Either way I think we have a chance at the state.

1992:
Clinton: 543,050(36.5%) Bush: 572,086 (38.5%)

1996:

Clinton: 653,288 (46.5%) Dole: 622,073 (44.3%)
