    So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish!

    Talk of leaving the Union has started to appear. Secession is a word that hasn't been used in a long time, but now at last it rears its ugly head. Mainly it comes from those on the Left, although a few on the right don't seem displeased at the notion either. At this point its just bluster. But should the Democrats lose in '08 things might start to change. As I have argued before, the Left is not used to defeat, and likely will not handle it well. Not that a state leaving the Union is likely, however. Very few blue states would have enough people willing to take off, and I doubt they would be willing to risk it on their own. In fact, I can't think of any at the moment. Its not like the south was before the war, with massive support for leaving the Union clustered in a rather tight but all encompassing geographic region. Also, much of this talk is coming from the chattering classes, and from the majority of Democratic voters. I doubt they would go along with the scheme.
