Newsweek "Who's Next" 2006: The Virginians

At the University of Virginia, Allen lived in a cabin on the mountaintop next to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. But the scenery did more to inspire a passion for deer hunting than textbook reading; his mud-spattered truck was a rare sight in the law-school parking lot.

Interesting article. I don't like some of his social positions just judging from the article, but it's better for the Dems to run someone like him and win than to run a real liberal and not get in at all.

I agree...he's a little conservative for my taste but you've got to compromise to win sometimes.

Yeah. It's just socially anyway, economically he seems to have the right idea (from what I've read about him).

Economically he's a genius. He's not really a politician, he's a brilliant businessman...which may be what this country needs after the mess Bush has left.

U2Democrat

Mess would be a grave understatement

I saw Bush w/ a shirt on last week that said

"Hey Dude Where's My Country?"
