      I hope that after this election he sees that what works in Illinois won't work at the national level. No amount of coal subsidies will keep the coal industry on his side. They'll run attack ads and try to defeat him anyway. At the same time the clean coal stuff only alienates his base. Independents are finding out that clean coal is a scam and I hope Obama finally accepts that too. It's becoming more obvious that it's unnecessary and unrealistic.
