Byrnne is a wonderful lady and a great Democrat for somwhere like California. Unfortunatly she has openly supported gay marriage all along during the Primary and is a proponent of saying she would prefer to raise taxes rather than cut any programs.
Don't get me wrong I like Byrnne, but Virginia will never elect her Lt. Gov. and she will hold down Kaine's Governor campaign as he tries to distance himself from her often outlandish statements.
The Attorney General nominee Creigh Deeds will have a hell of race of his own against ultra right winger Bob McDonnel from Virginia Beach. Deeds is still unknown in Virginia and will struggle to define himself against the Repub noise machine that will use Byrnne's ultra liberalism to hang him and Kaine with.
If nothing else Byrnne will be entertaining to watch in a debate against Bill Boiling more right wing than Rick Santorum.
