Abandon the South?

From the New York Times Magazine:

“[Democratic New Mexico Gov.] Bill Richardson says he believes in the radical theory, currently enjoying currency in some political circles, that the Democratic key to the presidency lies in making a crisp, clean break from the South, which for more than 70 years served as a bedrock constituency of the post-Reconstruction Democratic Party. ‘I don’t think it’s realistic for us to have a Southern strategy,’ he said . . . in Las Cruces, near the Mexican border. We should concentrate on either a Western strategy — a Western/Hispanic strategy — which is basically Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Florida, or we should try to pick off one or two states in the Midwest. Those have to be the two options to win the presidency.'”
