    McAuliffe wins narrowly: "Oh no the margin of victory was so small!"

    Several GOP delegates win narrowly: "Oh no we lost!"

    Seriously, it's like some folks are just searching for reasons to be sad.  

    The Dems won the governor's race by 3 points with a lousy candidate, in a state that elected Bob Transvaginal McDonnell in a landslide 4 years ago.  Turnout was better than in 2009, and the good guys beat a 36-year streak of the president's party losing--even while the president is getting pummeled in the national press, mostly for silly reasons.  

    Virginia certainly didn't turn out like our wildest dreams might have envisioned, but the state will be better off over the next four years than it has been for the last four.  

    IT WAS A GOOD NIGHT.  Let's take the win for what it is and move on to the next battles.
