“This administration is populated by people who’ve spent their careers bashing government. They’re not just small-government conservatives—they’re Grover Norquist, strangle-it-in-the-bathtub conservatives. It’s a cognitive disconnect for them to be able to do something well in an arena that they have so derided and reviled all these years.”

Virginia is for Democrats

You always like to be on the positive side of the poll numbers, even if the lead remains in the margin of error. Today's Rasmussen poll shows Democrat Tim Kaine edging in front of Republican Jerry Kilgore in the race for Virginia's Governor by a 46-44 margin. Again, it's well within the margin of error, but it does echo the idea that Kaine has been gaining momentum in the last week or so.

Add to that a new endorsement from the GOP side for Kaine and the fact that Kilgore is forced to duck and run from the President to keep from being dragged down further, and it appears that come election time, Virginia really will be for Democrats.
