Now, I am not typically a sore loser. However, if you look at this map you may see red (pun totally intended). This is a map of the Presidential election results by County. If you really look at this map, you will see that the majority of the Country actually voted for McCain (well, at least by number of counties). The map is almost totally red. The blue areas are around the fringes for the most part. Most of the areas have large cities within them. New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and San Francisco to name just a few. Shoot! Look at Illinois! It is pretty much split by counties.
The thing that bothers me the most about this is the fact that it seems like the Republicans just let the large cities go to the Democrats. They don't seem to worry about them. Now, I will agree that the greater Los Angeles area seems to be a lost cause at times, due mainly to Hollywood (the same could be said of San Francisco but only because that community is way out on the left as a whole to begin with), but, if McCain could have taken just one of the larger cities, such as Philadelphia or Miami, then the whole election would have changed.
Has anyone ever wondered why the Democrats campaign mainly near the larger cities? It is extremely obvious to me just by looking at this map. That's all they need to do. If they can take the larger cities, then they can carry the whole election. No matter what the rest of the country does.
So, Obama will be a President voted for by the inner cities and those that are way out to the left way of thinking anyway.
