Democrats and the West in 2008
By holding their convention in Denver, they’ve signaled to the country that they’re marching, knees high, into the West. It’s a bold move, and it’s long overdue: The last time the Dems held a convention in Denver was 1908, and it’s been 80 years since they held a convention west of Chicago or east of California. Over the next six pages, we’ll look at what the West means to the political left.
Among the Topics:
- Why the Sudden Move Westward?
- The Purpling of Colorado
- Educated Transplants, Hispanics, Libertarians and Independents
- Can the Democrats Win?
A really good read. (Full disclosure: I blog daily on Colorado issues for 5280's blog, Elevated Voices.)
