    A very interesting analysis. The problem is I am not sure that my fellow Libertarians will actually nominate Bob Barr, but I am hopeful. :)

    "It will be interesting to see how Bob Barr's independent run on the Libertarian ticket will affect the outcomes in the West. He certainly offers a Perot-like protest vote for hordes of disaffected Republicans in states like Idaho, Colorado, Nevada, and the Dakotas. Barr hails from Georgia, which along with Mississippi, is one of the states where a strong right-leaning third party vote, combined with record black turnout, could put a Deep Southern state in play for Obama. But, Barr's appeal is likely to catch fire, if it does at all, in the states where Perot ran strongest."
