On "Swing-States"

Posted: Mar 13, 2008 1:26 PM
Matthew Yglesias makes a good point about Hillary's argument that she would deliver "swing" states like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania:
Optimism-minded Democrats would like to think of "swing states" as being the states that John Kerry narrowly lost, but it's important to hold on to the states he narrowly won as well.

Yglesias also notes that Obama has won states like Wisconsin and Minnesota -- swing states that Kerry narrowly won.
