    Recently Ms. Maddow did a piece on the "Red State" strategy of adopting the Nebraska model for allocating electoral votes by Congressional district. The strategy is evidently to change the vote totals in the "swing" states to secure more Republican votes in the Presidential elections. Michigan is actually considering this approach.

    Well, Texas is rapidly becoming a "swing" state itself. It would be interesting to see how applying this model in Texas this last November would have impacted the electoral vote count.

    If Ms. Maddow ran such a piece, I think it would put a stake in the heart of these initiatives.
