    in more ways than one.  I used to live in Richmond, and I once worked for Chesterfield.  I still have many good friends there who mostly unfortunately are still blinded by some bias colored by Limbaugh and FOX. It once was the fastest growing county in the state (I've been gone a while so I don't know where it stands now), but that growth was mostly urban flight, and we usually know what fuels that.

    I condemn Mitt Romney for political opportunism in exercising his free speech rights to criticize America's leaders during a foreign crisis. Wow, I guess I just apologized for Mitt Romney being an ass.

      this will be one of the places we could see it first.  That parts of the county are now pretty diverse also adds put a little Obama counter-weight.

      I think in an Obama landslide nationally, he might even win Chesterfield.  That scenario would include an very energetic Blue Team and a disengaged Red Team.

      Also, this would make me laugh out loud for quite some time.

      Still waiting for Romney to release his source code!

        I would be flabbergasted.  I think Goode has a better chance of taking the Chesterfield I remember than Obama does, and I've only been gone from Virginia for 8 years now.

        But other things have made me smile inside in regards to Chesterfield.
