Oklahoma is most likely going to be Obama's worst, or second worst, state, depending on how Utah likes him.  I'm not quite so sure about Obama winning a county here, he just got *crushed* during the primaries and I don't think Hillary even tried very hard herself.

What's the argument exactly, for why Obama will outperform Kerry in Oklahoma?  Is it that Bush's Texan roots are more appealing in OK than Obama is unappealing? (if that makes sense)

I suppose Oklahoma is one of the few primary states Kerry lost as well, although by a much smaller election it was a much less contested race by that point.  I predict that Oklahoma will be Obama's worst state personally, but I feel that perhaps Utah could win out.  I mean, he's not a New England liberal, but being an inner-city Chicago black politician isn't exactly high-flying in these parts either, right?
