    Occasionally, when you name an organization (or a UID) you can freeze yourself in time. I always liked "DumpTerryMcAuliffe"'s posts, but in a year or two, we're gonna be saying "Wha?" "Who?"

    Same problem professional services companies have. The founders name the company after themselves and eventually they become CH2M Hill or PBS&J or G&O or BBD&O or ... well you get my drift.

      I don't think anyone was thinking long term, as it was started to get Kaine elected.

        Eric Grim and I were very much thinking long term, but we felt that the name "Raising Kaine" was too good to pass up and also we had ZERO idea if the blog would even be successful. Little did we know that it would become one of the most widely read progressive state blogs in the country (and that Tim Kaine would turn out to not be at all progressive).  Such is life. :)

        Thank you for visiting Raising Kaine, the voice of Progressive Virginia.

      it looks like Terry is running for Governor of Virginia, much to the consternation and delight of many. Mostly Brian Moran.

      •  It is ultimately good, though (0+ / 0-)

        if it saves us from nominating Brian Moran. He's a good man...with zero chance of beating the GOPer, Taliban Bob McDonnell.

          Why do you keep repeating, over and over again, that Brian Moran has "no chance" to beat "Taliban Bob?"  Is that constructive in any way, shape or form, when Moran very well could be our nominee (and when he's a good guy, fairly progressive, etc.)? And yes, that was a rhetorical question.

            in a Democratic primary, we should never argue against the other guy. If Brian is the nominee, he has all the support I'm able to provide. But until then, I intend to support Creigh Deeds and express that a large part of my support is Creigh's greater general election electability.

            You may disagree, and I look forward to reading anything you might have to say in favor/against any of the three candidates. As long as we're fair in the primary and united in the general, I can't see a problem.

              and may not get involved at all.  I happen to think that Creigh, Brian and Terry are all good people and I look forward to hearing their pitches to Virginia voters about why they'd make the best nominee for governor in 2009.

              Thank you for visiting Raising Kaine, the voice of Progressive Virginia.
