In fact, in the likely case that the 2008 election is an open race, it would be the first time since the 1952 election and only the second time since the 1928 election in which neither a Vice President nor a sitting President will be either party's nominee.

Maps depicting results of the 2000 election used blue to represent states supporting Democrat Al Gore and red for those supporting Republican George W. Bush.
The exceptional bitterness of that election ingrained the red state vs. blue state divide in public consciousness, and since then red has been closely associated with Republicans and blue with Democrats.
Neither major party was historically associated with any particular color; network television electoral maps alternated colors to avoid the appearance of bias.

 Election Returns Flashed by Radio to 7,000 Amateurs (1916)
In the U.S. Presidential election of November 7, 1916, Republican Charles Evans Hughes tried unsuccessfully to unseat the Democratic incumbent, Woodrow Wilson.
Fifty extra telephone lines were run into the American office, the theaters were placed on lines that were in continuous operation, and while the news of the closest Presidential election in years was being given to the public thru these channels, the editorial staff compiled the returns without the slightest confusion.
When the returns came in, indicating the election of Hughes, and the first edition was prepared for press at 11 p.m., the heads and the reading matter inclined that way.

 Aftermath(ematics) of Election 2000
Without trying to weigh in on the final outcome of the election, it might be worth looking at these questions; some will likely surface again before the elections of 2002 and 2004.
The lesson in Florida in 2000 was that an incredibly small number of voters (0.009% of all voters in the state) can command a large number of electoral votes and swing the election either way.

But, with respect to a Presidential election, the court must be both mindful of the legislature's role under Article II in choosing the manner of appointing electors and deferential to those bodies expressly empowered by the legislature to carry out its constitutional mandate.
The decision by both the Constitution's Framers and the 1886 Congress to minimize this Court's role in resolving close federal presidential elections is as wise as it is clear.
Holm, 285 U. The legislative power in Florida is subject to judicial review pursuant to Article V of the Florida Constitution, and nothing in Article II of the Federal Constitution frees the state legislature from the constraints in the state constitution that created it.

The 1916 presidential election between Woodrow Wilson, the incumbent Democratic president, and Charles Evan Hughes, the Republican challenger, was very close.

 U.S. FOREIGN POLICY IN THE ELECTION YEAR 2004
The closest election in U.S. history was the Hays-Tilden election in 1876, in which Tilden, a Democrat like Al Gore, not only won a popular majority, but the race finished in a tie in the electoral college and had to be decided by a special commission.
To win an election for the presidency, a candidate needs to get a majority of the 535 votes represented in the Electoral College, the total number of seats in the House and Senate.
It is also important to recall that the U.S. constitution, with its division of powers between the judicial, legislative and executive branches of the federal government, establishes that the focus of foreign policy rests with the executive branch.

 An analysis of the U.S. Presidential Election of 2000 -- " [Free Republic]
Bear in mind that there have been five elections since the last Electoral College misfire in 1888 that tiny shifts in the vote, sometimes just a few hundred people in a handful of states, could have delivered the presidency to the candidate finishing second in the popular vote.
Within days of her own election, Hillary Clinton said "I believe strongly that in a democracy, we should respect the will of the people and to me, that means it's time to do away with the Electoral College and move to the popular election of our president." Bi-partisan proposals are already going forward in Congress.
It is the pervasive fear throughout the thin states that if the president were chosen by direct election, whatever influence they retain through their disproportionate strength in the Electoral College would disappear, swamped beneath the massive populations of the mega-states.
