A more purple America. Posted by Hello It takes a graphic designer to put the election results into perspective -- far from a "broad victory," Bush's 51% of the vote turned some states "red" by a slim margin. By the same token, New Hampshire went "blue" for Kerry by a hair, so the "dueling monoliths" of red v. blue don't really exist. That means the "red states are full of idiots/blue states are full of godless yuppies" line of thinking is going to get us nowhere -- we need to reach out near and far to regain the national advantage for progressive change. Purple: the color of bipartisanship!
