Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, the Ohio River Valley is very much that way.  Scots-Irish have been there and in what is now West Virginia since they arrived in North America.  Doesn't matter what we think of Palin, they are likely to love her and her being on the ticket will increase their turnout. Fortunately, Michigan and Pennsylvania are different.  Biden will help with Catholics. The Catholics are more likely to exhibit what we would consider to be a social conscience than are most evangelicals, although this is changing with younger evangelicals.  The effects of that change might start to be significant by the next election.
