I think Bush-haters are on thin ice with this "Only 51%"/"Narrowest victory since Woodrow Wilson" line of reasoning. To me, winning this election means the increase in Bush's mandate is a divide by zero (because he lost last time). So this is huge. Given the preemptive war, Axis of Evil and UN flouting of last term, I think people should just forget about seceding and start thinking about moving to the moon or even another universe. This is dark energy folks, and it's time to be contemplating serious cosmology.
