This must be embarrassing for Democrats

– Liz Mair

I've noticed over the last few days that so many of them had such high hopes for taking the VA-01 seat away from the GOP. You know, Bush is very unpopular, so is the war, we're heading into a recession, we're killing the planet, etc.

Yet, voters there decided to back a Republican by, oh, the same margin (actually even a slightly better one than that) by which Bush won the district in 2004.

That ought to give Republicans in the Old Dominion a smidgen of hope. Though no one should get overly enthusiastic, here.
