    clueless, if this race has been talked about a million times already.  But, is this a race where we have a real chance at picking up a seat?

      in the right year.

      I'm no pundit, but I'd have called it a darkhorse race, somewhere on the border between tier 2 and 3 before this.

      Allen's under 50%, Webb's a good candidate, Bush is unpopular in VA - and Allen's a strong Bush backer via votes.

      What's more - Allen seems to have forgotten about this race until recently, and was already off running for 2008.

      Webb needs exposure  and he needed a gaffe by Allen.

      He's got the second, and we can give him both kinds of the first ($$$ and news/excitement).

      I guess everyone's got their own blog now.
