      as "the Third Way" for most Virginians and for that matter, for most Americans. Most people in this country, like 98% of them, would have no freaking idea what you mean by the "Third Way."

      What I see in Virginia right now, is that the GOP is, if not in big trouble, more greatly challenged then they've been since 2010, on a state level.

      By the time most people head for the polls, they have two choices, and have no idea how they got down to those two. What these numbers say, is that folks are more likely to vote Democratic in Virginia right now. That's not a bad thing.

      And please, can we leave Hillary out of it for now? I don't think she needs to take notes on what wins or doesn't. She's been around for a long while, and had more experience in what wins and what loses in the high stakes game of politics, than either you and I will ever have.  I actually think she's her own woman, even if she's not my fave candidate for 2016.

    •  I think McAuliffe breaking from the Third Way.... (5+ / 0-)

      ....approach is what helped him in this race. He was one of the main movers and shakers in the 2004 election and he saw how Kerry's campaign was bungled. It had no real ideological center.
