Michael Lind, writing in the liberal American Prospect, writes that how New England goes, so doesn't go the rest of the country. The Democrats must move away from identity politics (blacks, women, gays, unions, etc) and toward regional politics with a brief national platform centered on economic issues and not on foreign affairs or culture. Contains a good demographic overview of "greater New England," that is, the traits that make a Bostonian, Minnesotan, and Oregonian vote in similar ways.
