As i have indicated elsewhere, i am not looking for perfect. Your definition of "good enough" is not mine. Your idea of the "game" is not mine. I will work with both Democrats and Republicans. If a credible primary opponent to Manchin can be found I will support him. If a Republican shows up with credible ideas to rescue those blasted West Virginia towns from coal, I will support him.
I guess I will do what I have to do, and others will do likewise. I have worked around politicians for too long, I have not participated in the election process for too long, and I now see the results. I am now at the point where I am taking an active interest in every political race, in every one of the little dying towns I have been through for all these years.
