Another view of election 2008

An interesting and instructive election 2008 map of results by county from Real Clear Politics.
It's easy to see how many of the blue and red counties would turn shades of purple (like this blog's iconic map at the right of the page), if the map were to distinguish between big, mid-sized and close wins. Not many counties were won by 20-point margins, and even then, one should keep in mind that 40% of the voters supported the county loser, not an inconsequential proportion.
