    Greetings, Pero.
    i haven't studied Virginia politics, so I do not have the faintest idea. It is just one of those quirks of an election. Governors and presidents get all the attention, but what happens below them in the legislatures and in congress is as important. If McAuliffe does follow Clinton's guidelines, do as he did after 1994 when the GOP took back congress, maybe he won't have that much of a problem. Clinton would be a good man to learn from.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I saw that yesterday and seen the name of Jesse Jackson and said to myself, it figures.

That definatelly sends mix signals as to what the election of McAuliffe means. McAuliffe will have to work with a legislature that is 2-1 republican. That maybe a real hard task or maybe he will develope into another Christie and learn to work with the oppisite party. If McAuliffe doesn't work with them, the republican house of delegates he will be for a very rough time.

    The Virginia senate wasn't for election this year and is tied at 20-20. Should be interesting times for McAuliffe.
    I think mccauiffe will fail. First the GOP even at state level is appearing to solidify itself into a monolithic org like they are at the fed level and mccauliffe is a jerk. That combination IMO spells disaster for him. Hopefully he will surprise me.

    I remember that. Didn't know that was his baby. He's such a phony. The dems could've done so much better than him. I think he built up some political chips that he cashed in to get the establishment behind him early.

    At first sight, I thought that too. It may depend on how much Bill Clinton rubbed off on him as suggested by Polgara. Clinton was able to get a lot of thing accomplishes after the GOP took over congress in 1994. But Bill was willing to work with them and compromise. But if he is going to try to govern Virginia much like Reid and McConnell do the senate, my way or the highway. I would say you are right.

    Seems some of the shine has worn off the TP movement
    LOL. You and Obama and the IRS know why "massive amounts" of money didn't flow there. But those criminal type activities won't last forever. Maybe in three years somebody with at least a shred of honesty will occupy the White House.

    He already did. Lie after lie after lie is what he campaigned on.
