I could put a simple chart together. But I'm pretty sure that how I
see things working will not be considered the gospel truth by all the
groups involved.  In fact, would a chart I wrote be any better than a
chart you wrote? No matter who writes it, individual groups will come
back and may need to rewrite their portion of it.  Why don't you take
a crack at it, just drafting a chart that relates the groups in this
election to each other.  I'll make sure each of the groups takes a
look at it and puts in feedback.
Just make sure the chart graphics uses some purple.
