President Bush has visited every state in the country since he's been in office, except Vermont.

Residents speculate on why the president might have steered clear of the Green Mountain State, but they also point out that the state doesn't carry much political weight for Bush — with only three electoral votes and a tendency toward Democrats.

Still, the president has been invited to visit.
