  •  This is a good night for Democrats (15+ / 0-)

    VA is not an easy state for Democrats.  We had a very average candidate go up against a strident right winger who was able to tap into a long-standing base of voters that have always turned out for the GOP.  McAuliffe won.  It means all the difference in the world for the thousands of Virginians who would be eligible for medicaid under the ACA.  It will mean a lot for young people and economic opportunity and the rights of women.  It buys us another 4 years to gain the benefit of changing demographics as well as an opportunity to convince more Virginians that the Democratic party is the best choice for America.

    •  "Very average" is being generous (0+ / 0-)

      The Daily Show had it about right the other day when they drew the analogy:

      McAuliffe <-> Pond scum
      Cuccinelli <-> Dog turd

      In other words, McAuliffe won because pond scum is preferable to dog poop...
