16. During the 2008 primaries, West Virginia was one of the few states that openly

admitted that race plays an important factor in the decision to vote for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama.

First, the Right Wing knew this. That's why they exploited race and pitted Hillary against Obama. That's why they supported her over Obama.

Second, it was the same on the Democratic Party side. The level of racism was amazing! And West Virginia is a representation of that.

So, no, it doesn't surprise me at all that Tomblin and Manchin won't vote for Obama. They need to be relelected.
