CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - McCain camp looking for way to win without Colorado - Blogs from CNN.com I posted, about 4 hours ago, what swing states McCain supporters thought he might win. No one replied. I was waiting for someone to say "New Mexico, Colorado and Iowa." Too bad. So, looking at my map, if McCain loses New Mexico and Colorado, but wins Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, New Hampshire, North Dakotah AND Florida, you'll have a 269-269 doomsday scenario on your hands in which you'll have President Obama and Vice President Sarah Palin. The bad news for you Republicans is that Obama is up in Virginia and New Hampshire by double digits. If Obama wins either of those states, he's won the election. See my map.
