    Down East is pretty red.  Wendell Murphy country, a lot of it.  The northeast is slightly less bad, but not what you'd call "enlightened".  But if you go too far west, you'll run into the same thing all over again.  If you're looking in the mountains Asheville is the obvious first choice, if you can find work there.  It's not exactly a big business community, though there are some jobs in Buncombe Co outside the city proper.  Boone is much the same; college town, good tourist trade, but not a lot of actual "industry".

    In between there's the Triangle, Triad and Charlotte/Metrolina which are listed roughly in the order of blue-ness (based on my experience).  There are jobs there, even some good ones depending on what you do.  Statewide, unemployment is still above the national average (8.8% according to the last figures I heard) but it's probably worse in the far east/far west.  And don't look for it to improve while McCrony & Friends are running Jones Street.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
