61. Dean can win red states
I think by taking away the gun control issue, which is the sole defining issue for a significant portion of the electorate in several red states Bush barely won, Dean can pick up Nevada, New Hampshire and West Virginia. Other red states will be tough because he is the only candidate to actually perform abortions, but the Christian Coalition vote in states like Utah, Alabama, and Kansas won't go for any Democrat. He's also staked out what Joe Lieberman is already calling "protectionist" trade policies. A lot of the closer red states in the South would benefit from protectionism. The Carolinas. Loiusiana-where Mary Landrieu was largely re-elected because of questionable foreign sugar trade deals.
