Only about one third of Americans have passports, and if it weren’t for the post- September 11 requirement that one travel to Canada and Mexico on a passport, it would no doubt be an even smaller proportion. (Hence the high number of passports in states with large Latino populations). But take Latinos out of the equation, and which states are cosmopolitan is pretty clear. Lack of experience with the world seems to track pretty closely with strong opinions about how to deal with the rest of the world. It also tracks with socially reactionary views.

Where's The GOP Healthcare Plan?
Andrew Sullivan tells no lies on health care...
Juan Cole notes states most opposed to Obamacare are those with the fewest Passport holders:
So I have a possible solution... maybe we should send this guy below on a tour of Red America to explain ObamaCare to the good people fearing the right wing healthcare plot that was just upheld by the Supreme Court
Face it. We have to fix our health care system and the GOP plan of doing nothing but repealing what little improvements were made in ObamaCare is not economically viable option.
