I have the sneaking suspicion that their definition of "real" is "pro-McCain."

Exactly who is being elitist again?

As someone who lives in RoVA (rest of virginia), Northern Virginia is actually VERY different culturally. Home is central virginia and I go to school in tidewater virginia, and most of my classmates are from NOVA (northern virginia). It really is different, but hey they help Virginia get democrats elected

I was out in the mountains in western Virginia today, generally a deep red region, but the McCain v. Obama signs were about 50-50

yeah, i am out here in hillville, va cuz we went to visit our breeder today to pick out our chocolate lab, they live in laurel fork, va (a 5 hr drive from our house in md). We drove thru the country for quite a bit of the way to their house and I would say it was 60-40 McCain slightly over Obama in regards to signs on lawns that I saw.

Va. will have 2 Democratic Senators + a Democratic governor as of a couple of weeks from now. So, I think Obama is almost a lock for Va.

For Conservatives, the choice is obvious: it has to be Barack Obama - Telegraph

I guess the Republicans can do it too!!!11!!!

McCain's silence on this speaks volumes.
He's not repudiating this? No apology?

Ronald Reagan gives conservatives boners, so he's saying the fact that Obama cites Ronald Reagan (he does?) should clinche his argument for conservatives to vote for Obama.

Yeah, a few weeks ago, Joe McCain---Grumpy Grandpa Walnuts' younger brother---called Northern Virginia "communist country."

We here in NOVA give him a unified middle finger on that one.

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Obama shatters monthly fundraising record - Blogs from CNN.com

DUNN, North Carolina (CNN) – Barack Obama’s campaign had a record-breaking September, hauling in over a $150 million last month — a new high-water mark in campaign fundraising history.

In a video to supporters, Obama Campaign Manager David Plouffe said a record 632,000 new donors gave to the campaign, with an average contribution under $100, although several multi-million dollar fundraising events last month did pad that total. Over three million individual donors have given so far.

The man is a machine. In the debate, McCain tried to paint the fact that Obama has spent so much money as a negative thing against Obama---that he's a "big spender." The fact of the matter is, it's the American people as a whole who are the big spenders in this campaign. Yet, the beauty is that none of us really are---the average donation continues to be under $100.

I don't care whether you like Obama or not.....but you have to be impressed by the beauty of his campaign.

Colin Powell just gave a very eloquent and intelligent endorsement of Barack Obama.


Video to come later. It's brilliant how he breaks down the 2 campaigns and the 2 candidates. Come November 5 I think many people will be citing the same reasons Colin Powell did to explain why they voted for Obama

I can't wait to watch this! It comes on later (10:30) in DC for some reason, so I've got an hour to go...


it doesn't make sense to my why washington, dc of all places would show Meet the Press late...
