The westernmost point of the US is Point Udall (Guam).
The easternmost point of the US is Point Udall (U. S. Virgin Islands).
Don't forget the Clintons and the Obamas.
Well, to simplify things let’s just call all the land in-between Udall-land.
Please don’t. We need all the Kennedy-despisers we can get our hands on.
Ahhh.... X42..... Hitlery... Arkancide....
Such sweet memories of mud-boggin on the statehouse lawn...
