In the past week, voters have had the opportunity to see the Democratic candidates for president pandering to the blue-collar vote. Hillary chased her shot of whiskey with a beer, and Obama threw a few frames. Provided that you are satisfied with symbolism, then this establishes their bona fides. But what if you want more? What if you'd actually like to hear the voices of working class people, and not just the ones who still have $20 an hour jobs.
If one had gone further to seek out actual neighborhoods full of just such a group -- working class voters? A mobile home park, perhaps in a county stricken by the migration of jobs to textile mills in other countries, would have been an excellent place to visit.
