Slate on Florida:

“The problem with Florida this time is that it was so crazy-close last time: 537 votes – you may recall hearing something about it. Now Cubans, retirees, gays, veterans, albinos, agoraphobics, Zoroastrians – every group thinks it can swing the state. And so every group demands to be heard. It’s a tough burden for the campaigns: Do you know the kind of resources it takes to get out the agoraphobic vote?”

Concentration is important!
