My first thought when I heard that Tim Kain, the new Governor of Virginia, was going to give the Democrat’s answer to Bush SOTU was Mark Warner. Sure, Warner is the old Governor, but his presidential ambitions are pretty clear by now and from a strategic standpoint, many eyes are on the commonwealth for 2008.
In short, if the Dems can pick up Virginia and keep the states they won in 2004 (which they should easily be able to do), they’ll win the White House. And let’s see….who would be the best candidate to win Virginia? Why…maybe a Virginian?
