    Bob Wise is toxic. He was so tainted by an affair with a state employee he decided not to run for re-election as governor in 2004.

    Goodwin is too young and unestablished.

    I think Rockefeller is the Democrats best hope to retain the seat. He's an established figure with tons of money.

    The sad truth is that West Virginia is evolving to the same status as Deep South states like Mississippi and Alabama... very Democrat unfriendly territory. The realignment just took much longer than is those formerly core Democratic states... It used to be more midwestern like Ohio and Pennsylvania but it has become part of the Deep South.
