8. that's fascinating to me.
You made my jaw drop when you said it's possible that if a dem adequately addresses the most serious issues facing this country, NE will go dem.

I live in what must be the polar opposite of NE. The only thing I think Nebraskans and Vermonters have in common is that there are on awful lost of people in both states who are concerned with rural issues. But even here where I am, in the heart of Vermont's most rural region, where people frequently do vote repub, there's a strong antipathy toward letting any republican gain entrance to the White House.

McCain's flaws are just beginning to be showcased. The mask of an ethical maverick is a sham and should be removed- the sooner the better. I also think his age and health work against him, as does his sharp turn to the right in the primaries.

I can't think of anything that would give me more political pleasure than seeing NE go dem. Hell, I'd get a kick out of just seeing McCain held to a 5 pt margin of victory.

Let's hope that the dem nominee goes to Nebraska and addresses the vital issues you brought up.
