    ...then you won't like Virginia.  I don't know a lot about Bill Nelson, but I know he's less conservative than Ben Nelson (no relation) from Nebraska, and I have the impression he is in the same ideological ballpark as Mark Warner and Tim Kaine and Jim Webb.  If my impression is right, then you're going to have to stomach more of the same, at least for a few more years.  Virginia isn't liberal enough yet to vote for someone who postures any further to the left than Warner/Kaine/Webb.  Obama was an exception, but that's because he's the political superstar of our era.  Brian Moran and TMac are at least slightly to Deeds' left, but neither is a rock star.

      about Nelson is that I held my nose and voted for him against I can't even remember anymore...  I've always lived in the south (Tennessee, Georgia and Florida) so I understand the whole how Dems have to win here bit.  And, I appreciate VA Breeze's support for Deeds. I'm just trying to figure out who to vote for rather than be part of the 95% that don't show...
