    We need to focus on bringing Democrats BACK to coal country.  West Virginia was long a solidly Democratic state.  We voted for Dukakis for crying out loud!  But it's a labor Democratic state.  Corporate Dems have made many feel like they might as well vote their social values and vote "for coal" in national elections.  You're right, we need to be on the side of the people.  No true liberal would want to harm the thousands of ordinary employed by the coal industry who would be hard pressed to find something else with comparable wages and benefits.  We need to have a plan for them!
