    Loyalty.

    Southerners are well worth getting on your side although it's a job of work to do so.  Hard headed to a fault, loyal to the death, fullof kindness, generosity, and yes tolerance once they sign on.  A powerful force for good if they can be rescued from the undeniable strains of irrationality and bigotry that is such an ugly part of their heritage.

      We're not a bunch of noble dogs.  Positive stereotyping is just as unreal and nearly as annoying as negative.

      Please.  I spent most of my life in the South, surrounded by intolerance (religious and racial--wish I had a buck for everyone who told me I was going to hell for not being saved in a Southern Baptist church!) and sugar-sweet backstabbing.  There are all kinds of people in the south, good and bad, but looking at the objective evidence (voting history, polling data, and so forth) that region needs a lot of work.
