West Virginia - Maybe Next Time
West Virginia appeared to dance around for the past few weeks, but McCain has been leading consistently and now appears to be sealing the deal. I think this is a state we can have success with in the future, but it's more of a long-term project. The state is placed just perfectly for future "battleground" status, as Virginia, Ohio, and Indiana trend Democratic, while Kentucky, Tennessee, and the deep south remain Republican.
If I were to choose any future victories in southern states, it would be West Virginia. But maybe that's just because I really like the place. Who could resist those mountains and trees? It's like an Elvis song brought to life.
