5. That is right, what had happened by 2006

was that the democrats had allowed the republicans to box them into a situation where there were only about 18-20 states where they were competitive overall - it left a VERY small window for a EV presidential win, and left too many toss up congressional districts and senate seats unsupported.

You have to be practical and not throw good money after bad, but you DO have to compete in the toss up areas.
