I hear you; I normally don’t talk politics with people because it can get touchy to some, but it has to be all out embarrassing to be a republican at this point. I’ll get off the topic but I just had to share this video with the masses I just saw. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe; this is hilarious but scary at the same time. When you watch it you’ll see what I mean.

CNN Video

LMAO.........you have to see the entire skit then watch the real interview it is so hilarious because she said what was really said in the interview.....at the same time it is pretty pitiful and scary.

Not in any order....

1. New Mexico: the scenery, the peace and quiet, the Native American history.

2. Colorado: who doesnt love the Rockies (not the baseball team)!?!?

3. Illinois: Chicago, the people, the variety of terrain.

4. Missouri: I love the terrain, especially in the southern portions.

5. New York: gorgeous scenery, NYC.

6. Arizona: the deserts, North Scottsdale.

7. Florida: winter getaway weather, best beaches in the USA.

8. South Dakota: wide open spaces, Black Hills, terrain variety.

9. Vermont: fall colors, mountains, peace and absolute quiet.

10. Michigan: incredible beaches, the U.P., Mackinac Island, terrain.

1) Colorado
I love the Denver area. Some of the best weather in the country along the Front Range. Great recreation and scenery across the whole state.
2) Utah
I love it here along the Wasatch Front. All of the same recreational and scenery opportunities as Colorado, plus easy access to spectacular southern Utah. Slight disadvantage to Colorado due to more conservativeness and less people, but still great!
3) Alaska
Probably only Anchorage, as I would want to live in a large city, but it has the best and wildest scenery in the country with great summers! Travel opportunities to last a lifetime.
4) New York
Lots of variety with good climate. Also, New York City!
5) Washington
Great scenery, great climate, and Seattle, probably my favorite city in the country in terms of atmosphere.
6) Oregon
Similar to Washington, but no Seattle (although Portland is close). Plus that stunning coastline and plenty of mountains to boot.
7) Illinois
Chicago! Also, great scenery abounds nearby, especially to the north.
8) Michigan
Great scenery, great weather, plenty of cities to satisfy me.
9) Massachusetts
Boston! More good scenery and weather, and coastal Maine is a day-trip away.
10) California
Plenty of cities and natural wonders to satisfy me, although I'm not a big fan of the climate. Still, California has something for everyone. I'd probably focus on northern California, around Eureka, Redding, or the Bay Area. I'd try to avoid most of the Los Angeles area and especially the boring Central Valley.

Honorable mentions:
-Minnesota (because of the cold climate and great lake scenery, plus the Twin Cities seem like a nice place)
-Montana (would easily make the list if not for the lack of a major city; Missoula is the only city I would consider living in)
