Especially from those who want to turn international diplomacy into a dick measuring contest.

Better than those that want to turn international diplomacy into a dick sucking contest.

Actually by definition one is slightly more diplomatic.

But seriously a balance has to be struck.

I agree with Mr. Morden- Iowa and Colorado.

Call me crazy but a Guilliani, McCain or Hillary candidacy would put NJ in play
Only Giuliani but the dem would win it at the end of the day.

If that's how it went, then (assuming my math is correct), if the Democrats won Iowa and everything to its left, and the GOP won CO and everything to its right, then it would be a 269-269 tie.  And so I guess CO and IA would collectively be the "Ohio" of 2008, with the election being most likely to swing on the outcome of those two states.

I win.

Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington if McCain is the nominee.

Lol.

Lol.

Seriously.  Only states won by Clinton, Gore, and Kerry could potentially be close, right?  Even Dukakis won all of those except Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania
Obama - 54.48%
McCain - 44.17%

Michigan
Obama - 57.37%
McCain - 40.92%

Wisconsin
Obama - 56.22%
McCain - 42.31%

Minnesota
Obama - 54.06%
McCain - 43.82%

Washington
Obama - 57.43%
McCain - 40.32%

Oregon
Obama - 56.75%
McCain - 40.40%

To be fair, McCain probably did better in these states than, say, Huckabee would have.

Wow, extremely good call 2 years in advance. Congrats.

It was indeed Colorado and Iowa, with Obama needing Colorado for an outright victory, and McCain needing Iowa. However, assuming Obama would've won in the Democratic-majority House in the event of the 269-269 tie, the true bellwhether state of 2008 was Iowa.
