NYTimesBush opts to delay power grid improvement proposal.  Why?  A more efficient power grid would save customers in the north east and CA $500 m a year.  It would raise prices for power in the south, Bush’s political base.  Guess who lost that political equation?   Basically, CA (54) and the north eastern states NY (36), PA (23), CT (8), VT (3), NH (4), ME (4), RI (4), NJ (15), and MA (12) are being corralled into a solid anti-Republican block (total votes = 163 of the 270 needed to elect) by Republican hostility.  Building on this base, I think it is possible to mint this electoral map for the Dems in most elections moving forward.

    I advise you to write such kinds of posts daily to provide the audience like me all of
    the essential information. In my view, it is better to be prepared for all
    the unexpected situations beforehand, so thanks, it
    was pretty cool.
