Messina's map


Obama's campaign manager, Jim Messina, shares the campaign's conceptualization of the current electoral map as part of a video effort to boost his troops' morale.

TOSSUP: Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, New Hampshire, Colorado.

Obviously, there's an element of stagecraft here. Most people would group "North Carolina" in "Lean Romney", but the Obama campaign probably doesn't want to concede a disadvantage there.

But the most interesting inclusion on the list is Wisconsin, which has become an increasing object of interest in the wake of the Walker recall election.
