He voted!

And you?


Exactly two years ago, SurveyUSA completed interviews with 600 voters in every state (30,000 total interviews), asking them how they would vote in a 2008 Presidential Election between John McCain and Barack Obama. Based on those interviews, SurveyUSA was able to report that:

In November 2006, Obama carried …

1. His home state of Illinois.
2. His birth state of Hawaii.
3. The District of Columbia.

In November 2006, Obama got 28 total electoral votes.

In November 2006, John McCain carried 48 states, and rolled up 510 electoral votes.

How far has Barack Obama come in 24 months?

  1. I know we’re supposed to “look forward” but there is a valuable lesson to be learned about why Barack came so far and it has to do with the GOP itself, Bush/Cheney/Rice and their megalomania, and the fallout of neoconservative economic and fiscal policy. I personally think there are folks who need to go on trial for war crimes but at the very least the new admin needs to study and pay attention to recent history here.
