Will POTUS Eulogize Those Lost On the Deepwater Horizon?

Is it cynical to assume President Obama went to West Virginia to eulogize the coal miners who lost their lives on the job because West Virginia supports a Democratic governor and union jobs? Or was it because it was a good venue to push for his reform measures in a new energy bill slated to go to the Senate floor this week? Just wondering if he would also appear at a memorial service for the oil drilling rig workers who died, also doing their job last week?

Maybe Team Obama should remember the political fallout over the politicization of the Paul Wellstone funeral in Minnesota for the Democrats trying to capitalize on death.
