U2D,

Edwards has a better chance of running an HMO, or the AMA, than becoming pres. (IMO)

the last 3 dem presidents have been from TX, GA, and AK. Your Gov prosects seem to be good. Successful Gov's tend to have the inside track

Isn't Sen. Allen from Virginia? Hmm.. How interesting would 08 race between these 2 be?
Both w/ exec. exp. , both popular...., just a thought.

a few questions
how many times has he raised taxes after promising not to? 2nd, Is it true that your state is currently running a surplus, but yet he won't give $ back to the taxpayers?

BTW another dem prospect would be Bayh of IN.

There were thoughts that Warner would run against Allen for senate in '06, but if he's planning on running for prez that won't happen.

It's interesting but the recent budget fight divided republicans against republicans. The moderates sided with the governor and the hard line conservatives were against ANY kind of raise on taxes, even if it did cause a deficit. Yes we are running a surplus, and Warner (I may be wrong so don't quote me on this) wants to put the money away for future use in the "rainy day fund." Even though the taxpayers are not getting that money now, in future fiscal crises it will come in handy.

it will be interesting to see what is defined as a "rainy day" going forward.

I like the accents too. I think it's stupid to vote for someone because of their birthplace or place of residence or whatever. But geography always factors in in our elections. Don't ask me why, I can't tell you, it just does. Governors have more success winning presidential elections than Senators or Congressmen do. There are several reasons for this. This governor could be our man.

Gov. Warner is very promising indeed. If our Lt. Gov. wins the governors election next year, I'd say he has a good chance of being our nominee. If not, he could be cooked.

U2dem, pardon my ignorance but who is the Lt. Governor of Virginia? Another Democrat? I'm not up on all of my Democratic politicians.

The Lt. Governor is in fact another Democrat, Tim Kaine. He's a fascinating guy, I've never heard anyone, republican or democrat, say they don't like him. He has a good chance of winning because his opponent, the Attorney General Jerry Kilgore is a sleazeball. Republicans that I know agree with that too. It'll be a dirty race, but fun.

Good luck to your Lt. Governor in that case! Maybe Virginia can lead the country back to a Democratic Administration! That would be very cool. It's so strange, Virginia used to be the most Republican state in the South. That's clearly no longer the case.
