Obama Headed to Lebanon, VA

Barack Obama's commitment to campaigning in unfriendly territory like SWVA is a refreshing part of his candidacy.  Lebanon is likely to be McCain country through and through, but I am encouraged to see Obama walk into areas like this and make his case, that economically distressed coal towns can see jobs come back and conditions improved, if we have the right leadership in Washington (and Richmond for that matter). 

For now however, as discussed in the article below, Jerry "I have no duty to you Mr. Lieutenant Governor" Kilgore and Chris "Even more ambitious than Sarah Palin" Saxman seem content with playing the old culture warrior card in response to Obama's visit, rather than get off of their asses and serve their constituents.
