Blue Seeps into Red

From Fred Barnes' election post mortem at the Weekly Standard, some solid, non-chicken little observations.
What should worry Republicans most, however, is erosion of its strength in the West and in two states in particular: Colorado and Arizona. Fours years ago, Colorado was solidly Republican. Since then, Democrats have won a Senate seat, two House seats, the governorship, and both houses of the state legislature. At the state level, that's realignment.
Colorado and Arizona may not be there for Republicans in the 2008 presidential race...Virginia is now worrisome for Arizona, where two of the noisiest border hawks, Representatives J.D. Hayworth and Randy Graf, lost House seats. Graf lost in a seat along the Mexican border, where illegal immigrants flock.
