"safe state" of California, ironically without helping the pro-war 
Democratic Party candidate John Kerry (despite the hope of the 
Cobb/LaMarche faction) in the most crucial "swing states": Ohio (20 
electors/3.6% victory margin in 2004), Florida (27/0.0%), 
Pennsylvania (21/4.1%), and Michigan (17/5.1%). . . .
