Just to throw out a bit of trivia and tweak my friends a bit, I notice with some interest that Howard Dean was the governor of the least populous state in the Union; a state with significantly fewer residents than Austin, Texas. So, Dean balanced the budget, but it's not exactly like he was playing for the varsity.

I encourage you to spend a little time sifting through the census statistics, if you aren't familiar with them. I had no idea how unevenly America was populated. It certainly puts the Red and Blue states in a different light. Or, as Wanda Sikes put it so well after the 2000 election, when she claimed that America had actually elected Gore:

CHRIS ROCK: But Wanda, there's an awful lot of red states on that map.

WANDA: Chris, ain't nobody live there. See that one? (gestures vaguely to the heartland) That's one guy named Ed.

She's not far from right.
