Overall I feel Virginia has been one of the better managed states in America. There's been a centrist approach combined with some good governors. I include in that praise DEMOCRATS like Mark Warner and Tim Kaine...both men I've met multiple times and even got to know Kaine somewhat.

Now there's two lower-caliber candidates.

1)Terry MacAuliffe.

A rude, crude, combative fellow. The guy who turned $100k into $8 million via Global Crossing, after which the company lopped off 10k workers and went bankrupt.

2.Ken Cucinelli.

Ok, the Righty in me likes this guy but I think there's too much Social Conservatism for a state that is clearly purple. If he wins, I hope he is a pragmatist the way Governor McD has shown to me.

Speaking of McD, stupid scandals. I don't expect ANY of these guys to be honest....but really, free food for your daughter's wedding? Is that really worth soiling an otherwise impressive governorship?

Here's hoping that TerryMAC or Kenny boy turn out to be better than I think they will be.
