I think "no coo" has more to do with the eagles than the hawks, Marcia.    I know that a lot of people on this list, including myself, were very disappointed today, but tonight I'm in a better, and more reflective, mood.  Maybe it was those two hours working out at the gym. I really thought that Kerry would carry Ohio, but then, I don't live in Ohio, and some of my assumptions about Ohio and Ohio people may not have been on the mark.  I do live in Florida, another big swing state, and I did believe that Kerry would lose Florida.  Reasons?  The main one is the Governor of Florida, who is significantly more intelligent and effective than his brother.  Also, Jeb married an hispanic woman and we have a signicant hispanic population in Florida. Another reason was the hurricanes.  Four hurricanes in a two month period.  And believe me, the federal governement sent assistance and money here ASAP after those hurricanes.

Certainly not with the hawks around.
