I have another interpretation of the Open Left map of the white male vote that went for Obama in different states:
The take home message: expanding voting rights – a progressive position – resulted in the ability to elect more liberal politicians.
In addition to Open Left’s take-home and to Matthew Yglesias’s other take-home (“progressive politics is badly disadvantaged by a situation in which the overwhelming majorities of political leaders and prominent media figures are white men”), I would note that there seems to be an opportunity for the Democrats to turn Montana blue with a few more part-time residences for liberal movie stars.
