Virginia Chooses Wisely (Again)

Last year Virginia played an important role in choosing now-President Obama in the Democratic primaries, showing that he did have strength in that swing state and we later turned the commonwealth blue in November. Now Virginia has chosen Creigh Deeds over Terry McAuliffe whose claim to fame to date had been presiding over one of the worst eras in history for the Democratic party. Virginia's likely to be a close fought race, but Deeds is much better positioned to win and lead Virginia than a glad-hander like McAuliffe.
