    We knew that  

    In his column this week, Brendan Miniter, assistant editor of OpinionJournal.com, points out the obvious - that neither Bush nor Kerry will be wasting any time or money in the 32 states where the November outcome is regarded as assured.

    ``This year,'' Miniter writes, ``you are a swing state or you're nothing.''

    Ohio is something because it, along with Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, ``old-economy states being wrenched into the information age.''

    ``They may become safe states again if workers find a way to mine data instead of ore,'' Miniter concludes.
