More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    is that in spite of multiple examples that what hppened in West Virginia,kentuky bordering areas of Penn.ect had everything to do with race, people and the MSM continues to insist on the white blue collar narrative. This States and bordering areas have not elected a white democrat in ages and they are definitively going to have a lot of difficulty voting for an African American Democrat. Rendell in Penn. said that some areas of Penn. would never vote for an African American. On the other hand we have Oregon is 23rd in income per capita close to or below Ohio and Penn. and voted overwhelmingly for Obama and finally Montana which is 48th in income per capita 96% white and less tha 1% African American is slated to go for him handily. Go figure.
