Prior to the state's political realignment were there any pockets of Vermont that Democrats did well in?

Chittenden County, Franklin County, Grand Isle County. These three northwestern counties of Vermont had kind of become Democratic enclaves in an otherwise Republican state. Republicans carried them in landslides, but their margins were much smaller compared to the other counties.

Quote from: Stone Cold Conservative
Nobody can do it like Hillary can.  She will roll out the carpet out all over the GOP, state after state, pounding them in their own backyard.  The Democratic onslaught awaiting the GOP in 2016 will be merciless.  Once and for all the Roverian Kochite agenda of the GOP will be exposed before all the world and all the nation to see as Hillary brings Democratic performance to a peak not seen since Johnson, winning over 450 electoral votes in states.

AFAIK - not even whole Chittenden county. There were (and even - there are) some very successful Republican politicians from Chittenden county. And there is a sort of irony that Franklin county is among less Democratic counties now.

Raging moderate. Big fan of "mavericks" (in all parties) and big non-lover of "reliable foot soldiers" (in all parties as well). Very much "anti-tea party". Political Matrix - E: -0.26, S: -3.48. Like to collect bans on partisan sites (4-5 on DKE (+ SSP) and on RRH).

I would hazard a guess that from 1856 to 1908, Vermont was uniformly and strongly Republican.
