    With the two major party Presidential candidates in the U.S. both from nothern states (IL and MA), and the current VP also from a northern state (DE), and Mitt Romney's likely VP from a northern state (OH or MN), is it fair to conclude that the political center in the U.S. has shifted north?  It wasn't long ago that Presidential candidates had to be from either the south or west in the U.S. to win the Presidency.
