    but... I thought we were in the midst of a "democratic dynasty" (Carville, etc.). I thought VA was turning blue forever?

    there's not going to be a record number of democratic voters turn out for this election?

    what's the problem?

      Come on now, weren't you paying attention during the prez elections?  Parts of it may be turning blue, but not REAL VIRGINIA.

      •  IT's NOT ME not paying (0+ / 0-)

        attention-- it's the starry eyed dreamers here, James Carville, etc., with all of their nonsense about a coming "democratic dynasty".. just because the dems were lucky enough to finally have a POTUS candidate which inspired voters, key independent and swing voters.

        that's ending as soon as major legislation like EFCA and national health care FAIL.

      that turnout has been so low in all of the special elections around in NoVa since the Presidential.  It's like the Dems are tossing all of their seats to the Repubicans, since they are the ones turning out to vote.  I worry that the Dems have become to relaxed now that the Presidential race is over.

      •  NO, what you need to realize (0+ / 0-)

        is the democratic party is not very bright, nor are they significantly better than the repuglican party.
