Electoral Map Quote of the Day

From The Hotline‘s John Mercurio:

“In perhaps the most striking contrast to recent campaigns, Obama and McCain are poised to redraw the electoral map. Polls show McCain is currently competitive in traditionally blue states like New York, New Jersey and California — where Gov. (Defense Secretary?) Arnold Schwarzenegger is a bigger-than-life supporter. Obama, meanwhile, could generate unprecedented turnout among black voters in Southern states. (The unknown here is whether Obama’s presence on the ballot stirs a white voter backlash. It didn’t in the Democratic primary.) Such a dynamic wouldn’t just change the colors on the map; it would change the contours of the campaign and the issues the candidates debate.”
