Who Needs Pennsylvania? (Kerry)

According to an old joke, Pennsylvania consists of Philadelphia at one end, Pittsburgh at the other, and Alabama in the middle. George Will puts it more politely without deviating from that joke's substance in this piece, where he remarks that, strangely enough, Bush is likely to win the state only if he doesn't need to. Overall, Will is pessimistic that Bush will take the state, because it has a large amount of undecided voters, who, unenthusiastic about the incumbent, typically break for the challenger on election day. But Will also thinks that Bush does not need to win the state to win the election, while Kerry does.
