A couple of other WV areas I'll throw there are Morgantown/the North Central region and Martinsburg/the Eastern Panhandle, which has rail access to DC(parts are in that metro). That might still be too far north, but both are bright spots economically in that state.

In my opinion given your ability to choose anywhere along with moderate politics overall and a year-round climate fitting your wishlist, the Asheville-Hendersonville NC area is your best fit of the group. Asheville in particular packs a big punch for variety of things to do for a city it's size and has a restaurant/food/cultural scene competitive with cities many times it's size, yet is still affordable for most.
"Inter-mountain East"? I've never heard of any eastern regions of the country referred to in such a way.
Intermountain west however is a region of the west:

Well, OP, a hot, dry place is going to be more brown than green. A cold place is going to have snow.

In one of your other posts, you indicate you're from Grand Junction. You get 17-18" of snow per year--i.e., very little. Where should you move? My vote is closer to work.
