Castro’s Death Could Help Elect Hillary Clinton
Hotline’s Chuck Todd speculates on how the much-hoped-for death of Fidel Castro would impact American electoral politics, most notably “Florida’s 27 electoral votes.”
It’s an interesting question, given that Florida was key in 2000 and that retaining it will likely be a prerequisite to a Republican winning the White House in 2008 and beyond. If the Cuban vote were up for grabs with Castro gone, there would indeed be a new dynamic at work.
As an aside, I predict a minor cottage industry in thought pieces on this very subject, along the lines of the recent spate of “What if Roe v. Wade were overturned” articles.
