Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

2008 Battles

Everyone should go check out SurveyUSA to test all the presidential matchups for 2008. They have polled every matchup in every state to calculate the electoral college results for each of the probable GOP and dem candidates.

The most interesting showing is that a McCain-Edwards matchup would yield the closest race, a 272-266 EV win for McCain. This is interesting to me b/c I have heard alot of people say that would be closer than many people expect; so this polling info somewhat proves it.

Obviously this is an imperfect science, but it does shed some light on how the electoral map breaks down.

Also, Virginia is consistently in the GOP column based on this polling in any reasonablly close races (other than Mark Warner who wins Va against anyone).

    Massachusetts votes for McCain over Edwards? I don't think so...

    Journaling Strategies To Make It Easy Recently I was watching the Oprah show and it was about doing something really great in someones life. Was it buying them a special gift? Or taking them out? Not really.

    It was about saying something really special to them. Telling a child how beautiful they are.

    Telling someone you love how you appreciate their beauty, how you love spending your life with them.

    Comments like these last for that person and makes an "imprint" on them for the rest of their life. Especially to children.

    The Rail Splitter is most famous for his roles in preserving the Union and ending slavery in the United States with the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

    Historians have argued that Lincoln had a lasting influence on U.S. political and social institutions, importantly setting a precedent for greater centralization of powers in the federal government and the weakening of the powers of the individual state governments.
