    Astounding!

    Former Gov. L. Douglas Wilder - Democrat, who backed Democrat Barack Obama for president in 2008, will not endorse Obama:

    The Republicans endured a bad nominating process. Yet in the end, they seem to have chosen a credible candidate that many Virginians tell me they would feel fairly comfortable with in the Oval Office.

    Democrats counted on using ad hominem attacks to make Romney seem too unworthy and too unsteady to be the country's chief executive because of the rough nominating process. But that has not been 100 percent effective.

    The race is so close, we will have to wait until November 6 for a definitive answer. But for a state Obama may need to win, that uncertainty after almost four years on the job cannot be a great comfort to his campaign operatives.

    Not a huge surprise. He's never really liked Obama and has been sniping at him for some time.

    Some old guys become crabby old has-beens. Unfortunately, Gov. Wilder is one of them.

    Just keep saying shit regardless of facts.

    He's polling ever so slightly ahead of Romney, we'll all see how it turns out sometime tomorrow night. It'll be a squeaker regardless.

    This is why I moved to Virginia a few years ago, rather than moving back to DC or to Maryland. Turn Virginia blue!!!!!!!

    Fivethirtyeight on the changing political landscape in the Old Dominion. An interesting read.

    I see these regional differences in my daily life. Romney signs are few and far between in Arlington, but out in Fauquier County where our farm is, the Obama signs are more scarce.

    More like a whisker, within the margin of error of most polls. Everyone get out and vote. Help turn Virginia blue!!!!
